Flu Vaccines

Health Ministry: There are sufficient flu vaccines

The Ministry of Health is seeking to give the assurance that it is closely monitoring the supply and distribution of influenza vaccines to meet the increased demand at the nation’s public health institutions.

The ministry says that to date, approximately one-third of the vaccines acquired have been administered (24,000 administered out of 75,000 vaccines).

"While the Ministry is encouraged by the significant public response to the flu vaccination drive, we remind members of the public there is a sufficient quantity of the flu vaccines," the statement said.
