Press release date: 1st October 2014
With the cold unpredictable weather of winter just around the corner, the number of people coming down with the flu is set to rise.
Most commonly known as the flu, Influenza is an acute viral infection that spreads easily from person to person which can cause annual epidemics during the winter months.
The most effective way to protect against the Influenza virus is to get vaccinated and the Tropical Medical Bureau offer these important vaccinations at a selection of their clinics nationwide.
Flu vaccines at TMB cost just €25 or €15 as part of a course of vaccinations. There are also group and corporate rates available as well as on-site vaccination services for groups of 20 or more.
Dr Graham Fry, Medical Director of TMB, says, “It is extremely advisable for those who are susceptible to infection, such as elderly people and those with conditions such as asthma and bronchitis, as well as international travellers (due to crowded conditions at airports and on board planes), to ensure they are vaccinated.
Andrew Lewis, CEO of TMB says “We encourage groups, companies and organisations of 20 or more to use our group on-site vaccination service to ensure they don’t fall victim to high rates of absenteeism this winter due to Influenza.”
The vaccine is specific to each winter and should be taken during October for maximum protection.
The Tropical Medical Bureau has 20 clinics nationwide.
