Vaccination against flu and pneumonia during the COVID-19 pandemic

Pneumonia and influenza are totally preventable respiratory infections. Nevertheless, thousands of cases are diagnosed every year.

To reduce bed occupancy at hospitals and to keep as much of the workforce as active as possible, vaccinating against the flu is considered especially strategic this year.
