AGU Launches 3rd Annual Vaccination Campaign against Seasonal Flu

In keeping with its annual practice, Arabian Gulf University (AGU) organised a seasonal influenza vaccination campaign for all members of faculty, in coordination with the King Abdullah Medical City Medical University Centre, to reduce the spread of viral infection, which peaks in winter compared to the rest of the year.



Assistant Professor of Public Health at the College of Medicine and Medical Sciences, Dr Salman AlZayani supervised the implementation of the campaign following the great success of previous years. He said that AGU has ensured the provision of free seasonal influenza vaccination for all its employees for the third consecutive year in order to protect them from viral infection before the winter season.



He explained saying that vaccination is the most effective means of preventing infection. The World Health Organisation advises for annual seasonal flu vaccination this time of year, specifically before the end of October. Dr AlZayani indicated that the vaccine is also available to the public at the King Abdullah Medical City Medical Centre at a nominal price.



Dr AlZayani pointed out that seasonal flu spreads easily in all public and private places. The infection can easily transmit through the air and contaminated hands. Seasonal flu is often characterised by sudden fever, cough, headache, muscle and joint pain, nausea, sore throat, and runny nose. The flu can affect individuals of all age groups without exception.



However, children under the age of two, adults over the age of 65, patients with chronic diseases such as heart, lung, kidney, blood and metabolic diseases or those with weakened immune systems are the most vulnerable to the risk of developing complications.



Dr Salman AlZayani suggested that safe vaccination would reduce illnesses leading to hospitalisation or death, in some cases. On the other hand, it also reduces the negative economic impact due to cost of treatment, which also leads to the absence of employees and employers from work and students from school during the winter season.
