DU "TMO of the Ministry of Internal Affairs of the Zhytomyr Region" STARTED VACCINATION AGAINST THE FLU!

To prevent the flu epidemic, the "TMA of the Ministry of Internal Affairs of the Zhytomyr region" invites you to get vaccinated against the flu at the institution's polyclinic. Vaccination is carried out with the four-component vaccine "GC Flu quadrivalent", the manufacturer is the South Korean pharmaceutical company "Green Cross Corporation". The strain composition of viral antigens contained in the GiC Flu Quadrivalent vaccine complies with WHO recommendations for the 2021-2022 season.
Every year, the influenza epidemic season lasts approximately from September - October to March - April. During this period, there is the greatest risk of contracting a dangerous disease.
Influenza is a highly contagious viral disease with the possibility of serious complications and the risk of death. The source of infection with influenza is a sick person. An infected person with influenza during the disease, in a feverish state, is especially contagious. The infection period lasts an average of 4-7 days. The infection is transmitted mainly by airborne droplets.
Annual vaccination is the most effective means of protecting the body against influenza viruses. The vaccine protects against all current strains of influenza and is safe and effective.
However, the severe form of the disease is characterized by rapidly progressing primary viral pneumonia, which, unlike bacterial pneumonia, is not sensitive to antibiotics and without proper treatment can lead to death within 24 hours after the first signs of complications appear.
Whatever the strain of the virus, it is worth remembering and following the most important simple rules. After all, influenza, like other respiratory viruses, is transmitted by airborne droplets and affects the respiratory organs. Preventive measures are primarily aimed at increasing the body's resistance to the action of influenza pathogens, as well as other GRI and ARZ.
So, simple things that save lives: avoid contact with sick people, use medical masks, avoid drying out the mucous membranes of the nose, use general hygiene rules, regularly ventilate the premises and perform wet cleaning, follow a healthy lifestyle, additionally protect yourself - get vaccinated annually. An encounter with a virus without protective antibodies leads to illness.

Vaccination is free.
