The Ministry of Public Health (MOPH), in collaboration with Hamad Medical Corporation (HMC) and Primary Health Care Corporation (PHCC), on Sunday announced the launch of the annual seasonal influenza vaccination campaign.

Starting September 18, flu vaccines will be available free of charge at 90 health facilities, including 31 PHCC Health Centers in addition to outpatient clinics at Hamad Medical Corporation and several semi-government and private hospitals and clinics across Qatar.

Head of the Infectious Diseases Division at HMC Dr Abdullatif Al Khal said it was important for people to be proactive and protect themselves against the flu as early as possible.

“The circulating flu viruses change from year to year which is why it is so important that you receive the flu vaccine annually,” Dr Al Khal said.

“We need to remember that flu is a serious disease that can lead to hospitalization and sometimes, even death, and should never be underestimated.” page 4
