The metropolis joins the fight against the flu. Vaccinations will start at 12 points

According to the announcements, vaccination against influenza is carried out at 12 points, where vaccination against the coronavirus is also underway.

It is a metropolitan free vaccination program implemented from the 2019/20 season. It will be similar this year. The metropolis of Poznań, in addition to continuing vaccinations against the coronavirus, is starting flu vaccinations.

The metropolitan vaccination campaign against COVID-19 has had noticeable results – emphasizes Jan Grabkowski, vice-president of the Poznań Metropolis, Poznań staroste. The experience gained in this way allows us to quickly launch flu vaccination on the same points. We want to effectively counteract all threats to the health and life of our residents. Since November, we have vaccinated the inhabitants of 65+ of the Poznań poviat against influenza, and in the entire Metropolis we care about the immunity of professionally active people – he adds.

The Ministry of Health said the rise in flu cases coincided with the onset of coronavirus wave 4, so it’s important to prevent further cases from both viruses. Hence the ministerial decision on free vaccinations for all adult Poles.
