The importance of annual flu vaccination for healthcare personnel

The COVID-19 pandemic has emphasised the importance of vaccination. Every year the public faces the influenza virus, which causes more than 200,000 deaths from respiratory infection in the world. Hospital patients are especially at risk, so it is important for healthcare personnel to be vaccinated not only against COVID-19 but also against the flu.

In the period 2018/2019, only 35% of healthcare staff were vaccinated in this campaign.
