A very common medical condition seen in our community. Get protected and reduce your risks of catching the flu bug by vaccinating yourself and your loved ones today!
The vaccine will usually take 2 weeks to reach its maximum efficacy, and its effect would last for 1 year. With the new quadrivalent (4 strains) vaccine, there would be better coverage (as opposed to the conventional vaccine which only covers 3 strains) to further reduce the risks of contracting the viral infection.
Vaccination is strongly recommended in those with underlying pre-existing medical conditions such as diabetes, heart, kidney or lung diseases (ie. COPD/smoker’s lungs and asthma); as well as those above the age of 65 years old, pregnant women (at all stages of pregnancy) and the young.
Feel free to contact our clinic staff for more details!
