CATANZARO The flu vaccination campaign in Calabria is set for 25 October. This was announced by the Region.
“The single contracting station, following the agreement stipulated with the commissioner structure, in execution of the law decree 150 of 2020 (‘Urgent measures for the relaunch of the health service of the Calabria region and for the renewal of the elected bodies’), concluded – reports a press release – the purchase procedure for anti-influenza vaccines 2021/2022, with the stipulation of framework agreements for a total of 565 thousand vaccine doses. Free vaccination will be offered to children aged between 6 months and 6 years, to adults aged 60 and over and to health and social health workers particularly exposed to the risk of infection. The vaccination campaign foresees the involvement of general practitioners and pediatricians of free choice, who will also have an active role in the implementation of the ‘influnet’ epidemiological surveillance system, which is part of the Higher Institute of Health ”.
“Even in the current anti-influenza vaccination season, given the persistence of the state of emergency linked to the spread of the Sars-Cov-2 virus – the press release continues – vaccination is of considerable importance, as an instrument of proven effectiveness not only for protection of the health of thousands of citizens, and among these in particular those most at risk, but also in the prevention and contrast of the pandemic, because it allows to distinguish, with appreciable effectiveness, the flu pathology from that of Covid-19. The importance of prevention and the need to adopt all the useful tools to combat the pandemic lead to recommend massive participation in the anti-influenza vaccination campaign, addressing general practitioners, or pediatricians of free choice “.
