Within the frames of the top priority national project “Health” Bashkortostan will receive 800 thousand doses of vaccine against seasonal flu in September, the news-service of Ministry of health protection RB reported. Specialists believe that mass vaccination is one of the most efficient methods for prevention of flu. The modern method of vaccination is absolutely safe and has no any side effects. Immunization of pensioners, pupils, students, employees of medical and education institutions, transport and communal sphere reduces flu sickness rate two-three times. Government RB recommends directors of local enterprises and organizations to vaccinate their employees at the expense of their own means.
