Flu vaccine campaign 2017

October 2017

The anti-influenza vaccination campaign has begun and the professionals who take care of PID children are the first to get vaccinated and to put "barriers" on the transmission of influenza. For this reason, the UPIIP healthcare staff at the Vall d'Hebron Hospital has been vaccinated as a protective measure for its patients, showing full support to the campaign.

The priority goals for this campaign are:

* Improve coverage in pregnant women
* Improve coverage in people with risk factors
* Improve coverage in healthcare professionals

If you are a patient at risk or co-exist with one, you can contact your primary care center to be vaccinated. In case of doubt, ask your doctor.

Vaccination is the best way to prevent flu, protect yourself and those around you!
