Dr. Maryam Al-Hajri, Assistant Undersecretary for Public Health at the Ministry of Health, member of the national medical team to tackle the Corona virus and head of the vaccination committee at the Ministry of Health, stressed the importance of taking seasonal flu vaccinations and anti-Coronavirus vaccinations, as vaccinations in general have proven their effectiveness as one of the most effective preventive methods for controlling various infectious diseases. Therefore, vaccination plays an effective role in preventing various diseases.

Dr. Al-Hajri indicated that the seasonal influenza vaccination does not conflict with the anti-Coronavirus vaccination, but it is recommended that there be a time difference between them by 14 days, in order to reduce the side effects on the recipients of the vaccination, and to track complications if they occur, noting that the target groups are children from the age of 6 months, the elderly, people with chronic diseases, those with immunodeficiency, and pregnant women.
