Flu vaccination campaign launched in Sevastopol
The main season of colds, including flu, will begin later — in the second half of October, but in order to reduce the risk of infection, you need to get vaccinated now. Then the immunity will have time to form before the peak of the incidence. The influenza vaccination campaign in Sevastopol has already begun — the vaccine has already been received and distributed to the city’s polyclinics.
We have received influenza vaccines for children, pregnant women, people with chronic diseases and adults— the press service of the Government of Sevastopol quotes the chief freelance epidemiologist of the Sevastopol Health Department Sergey Gryga.
Doctors say that vaccination remains the main measure for preventing influenza.
I call on all Sevastopol residents to go and get vaccinated. All the vaccine we have has proven itself well, we have been using it to immunize the population for more than a year, it works. Separately, I want to appeal to parents to give consent for the vaccination of their children. This is the only way to reduce the possible complications that the flu gives, or to completely avoid contracting this dangerous infection.— emphasizes Anna Ostrovskaya, head of the medical care organization department of the Health Department.
The vaccine is available in all vaccination rooms of Sevastopol clinics, you can get vaccinated without an appointment. Vaccination of children in schools and kindergartens will be organized centrally, by groups — the vaccine is already being distributed to educational institutions.
Recall that before vaccination, the patient must be examined by a doctor. The main contraindication is fever and other symptoms of SARS.
