The recently imported flu vaccines are currently being assessed by the Health Ministry and soon will be available in pharmacies across the country, said Mohammad Mahdi Guya, head of the ministry’s Center for Infectious Diseases. “The best time to get a flu shot is late September and timely distribution of the vaccine will enable groups at high risk of contracting influenza to take the vaccine before the start of the cold season,” IRNA quoted him as saying. Students, people above 65 years and also pregnant women are at risk of contracting the flu and should be vaccinated, he added.
