Flu shot prescriptions to start Oct. 1

Prescriptions for this year’s influenza shots will start on October 1, chair of Greece’s Naitonal Vaccination Committee Maria Theodoridou said on Monday.

Vulnerable segments of the Greek population should do it, she said, explaining that one need not wait between shots of the coronavirus, flu or other vaccine as the pneumococcus one. The fact that the flu levels were low in previous years, especially last year, does not mean the public should ignore it, she said.
