The Ministry of Health has confirmed today the death of two elderly men due to complications from the flu. The Ministry’s announcement says that the men had other illnesses along with the flu.
The Public Health Institute says that, as the flu is spreading all around the country, all health centers and pharmacies are equipped with vaccines against the AH3N2 virus.
There are currently 2 kinds of vaccines, and people who do not have the flu can receive them. However, citizens say they have not been vaccinated and that they weren’t informed by their family doctors.
Citizens are urged to stay warm and consume fruits and juices.
The flu vaccine costs 900 lek in pharmacies or citizens can get it for free at State Health Centers.
