The Athens Medical Association is calling on citizens to contact their treating physician to get vaccinated with the necessary vaccines depending on their health condition.

In its announcement, ISA states:

“The Medical Association of Athens draws attention to the vaccination of citizens against respiratory infections that may endanger the health, especially of vulnerable groups.

The ISA Scientific Committee emphasizes the need to vaccinate the adult population with the updated SARS-Cov-2 vaccine expected in the near future, as well as influenza and pneumococcal.

Especially, for the flu this year there is an enhanced vaccine, with better results, for those who are over 65 years old.

The ISA invites citizens to contact their treating physician, to be vaccinated with the vaccines that are necessary, depending on their age and history. Also to be informed about the new vaccines that are available and can protect them from serious diseases.

ISA’s firm position is that no medicine can be given without a prescription. No medical procedure can be performed by non-physicians, in inappropriate places”.
