Flu vaccinations

Today in El Tiempo there was an announcement that the next flu vaccinations will begin in October, 2019.

"Zone 6 health centers reinforced the information campaign to prevent influenza in Azuay, CaƱar and Morona Santiago. Jorge Torres, zonal director of Health Surveillance, said that immunization is key to preventing it.

“About seven years ago we worked to avoid complications from influenza through vaccination. Influenza is a seasonal disease that is circulating, so it is important to work to raise public awareness,” he says.

"This year the vaccination was until March, and more than 400,000 doses were applied, the next campaign will be in October. The risk groups are: children under five, pregnant women, adults over 65, people with disabilities, health professionals and people with chronic diseases."
