Flu jabs available from beginning of October

Vaccinations

Vaccinations of vulnerable groups of the population against Type A flu will start at the beginning of October, the health ministry said on Monday.

According to the ministry, 180,000 vaccines have been ordered, 25,000 more than in 2020.

So far, 60,000 vaccines have been received and a second batch of 50,000 vaccines is expected within the week. The remaining quantity will be gradually delivered by the end of October.

The vaccines will be administered by the general practitioners (GPs). Vaccinations are expected to start in the first days of October.

The distribution of vaccines to the GPs will be done through the same procedure applied by the Health Insurance Organisation last year. More information will be announced next week, the ministry said.
