As the flu season is about to start this autumn, many experts point out that the vaccination against flu may be more important than in any year previously.
“If an organism weakened by flu is infected by the new coronavirus, even a patient who is not in a risk group may theoretically be left fighting for their life,” epidemiologist Rastislav Maďar told The Slovak Spectator back in June.
Health Minister Marek Krajčí has called on risk patients and seniors to get vaccinated. Flu vaccines should be available from October.
Lack of vaccines?
The Health Ministry said that there will be 240,000 vaccines against flu delivered in Slovakia which is a similar number to that of 2019.
