Influenza vaccine: vaccination of at-risk groups completed, vaccine can be delivered to people of low-risk groups

Based on data collected from pharmacists by the FAMHP, it appears that all category A patients who requested an influenza vaccine, have received their vaccine. The limited remaining stock of influenza vaccines can be distributed to the rest of the population, preferably to people over 50 years old or people working in vital sectors. Influenza vaccination remains appropriate until the flu peak has been reached, which has currently not happened yet.
