Due to the influenza H3N2 virus now circulating in the United States, the general public is informed that the Ministry of Health through its Primary Health Care Department has undertaken to administer the Seasonal Influenza Vaccine to children 6 months – 35 months, the elderly 65 years and over and pregnant women. These groups are targeted since they are more vulnerable to severe morbidity and mortality from complications of the Seasonal Influenza virus.

Persons interested in receiving the vaccine should contact their health centres in their area.

The vaccine is also available at Dr. Burnette’s office.
