This year is even more important

16 January

The beginning of this year’s flu vaccination campaign is being broadcast these days by many television channels.

Getting the annual flu shot is always important, but it is more important than ever this year, since being infected by influenza and COVID-19 at once significantly increases risk of death, especially among patients with other comorbidities.

Besides, we must not forget that the virus is still among us, and it is an infection that can lead to severe consequences, including the need for hospitalization, which would entail additional burden for our health system.

That’s why getting a flu shot this year is especially important for some groups of patients:

  • People aged 65 years and older
  • Medical and healthcare workers
  • People at high risk
  • People who cohabit with people at high risk
