The Panhellenic Medical Association reminds all citizens of the need for timely, within November, anti-influenza vaccination, given that from mid-December to March, there is an increase in flu cases in our country.

Citizens over the age of 60, health workers, those who look after young children and the elderly, those living in closed structures, the immunosuppressed and the chronically and seriously ill should be vaccinated against influenza, while it is useful to discuss with their doctor the possibility of vaccination, all citizens without exception.

The PIS emphasizes the need for the citizen to have discussed with his doctor the need for any medical procedure, such as vaccination, in order to give the doctor the opportunity to inform about the possible particularities presented by each organism (active infection, certain autoimmune diseases etc.) but also to promote the need for vaccination of all citizens.

PIS sounds the alarm that the 13,000 vaccinations per day against SARS-CoV-2 are too few.

Doctors must inform their patients who were sick or vaccinated against the coronavirus 6 months ago, that they are currently completely uninsured.

The implementation of the updated vaccine for the latest mutations of SARS-CoV-2 is mandatory according to the recommendation of the National Vaccination Committee for everyone over 60 years of age, health workers, but also for any other citizen who wishes to be protected.

Any citizen who has doubts or questions about the updated SARS-CoV-2 vaccine can contact their doctor for clarification.
