Successful 2018 flu vaccination drive
The Ministry of Health is engaged in a robust Influenza Vaccination Drive for the 2018 Flu Season (October 2017 to July 2018). As a result, there has been a more than 70% reduction in the number of confirmed Influenza cases for this Flu season when compared to the previous season (based on surveillance information up to June 2018).
Over 60,000 citizens throughout Trinidad and Tobago received influenza vaccinations during the 2018 season.
The Ministry of Health extends its sincere gratitude to the nurses, doctors, allied health professionals and all other stakeholders who worked diligently to make this possible.
