In the coming cold season, doctors expect the spread of influenza viruses, such as "B", "Hong Kong" and "Michigan." Each of them has a short incubation period, ability to spread over long distances and ability to adapt to drugs. In addition, any type of flu is dangerous with serious complications that can even lead to death. The SOVIGRIPP vaccine in the region is able to provide the necessary protection against infection.
As reported by the regional administration, people from risk groups should first be vaccinated – service sector workers, social services, education, health care, small children, pregnant women, elderly people suffering from chronic lung, heart, immune system, diabetes.
