Free flu vaccines from pharmacies

The municipality of Lule once again hosts the “Local SNS vaccination” program, within a coordinated framework between the municipality, the Ministry of Health and the National Association of Pharmacies that will strengthen the seasonal influenza vaccination network.

The participation of pharmacies in the process of vaccination against seasonal influenza will allow “to provide a more effective response to the population thanks to the increase in the number of places and times available, as well as to ensure the service of proximity where, in general, there is a relationship of trust between the user and the pharmacist.”
