Health Minister urges citizens to take H1N1 vaccine

Health Minister Terrence Deyalsingh said TT is now at the start of the flu season and citizens, while they continue to protect themselves from covid19, also had to protect themselves against the H1N1 flu.

He said out of the 200,000 vaccines that was ordered, 100,000 arrived in the country on Wednesday. The second batch will arrive in early 2021.

The following clinics, he said, will be set up for citizens to be vaccinated. They include antenatal clinics, chronic care clinics, and two designated health centres in each county.

He also assured pregnant women that the vaccine is safe and would not harm them and their unborn child.
