Debrecen – It can even be fatal if someone is infected with Covid-19 and the flu virus at the same time.
They have already arrived at the medical office on János Street about influenza vaccinations, they have primarily submitted 200 doses to the district, but this can be further increased. There has been a lot of interest in advance, you want to see the number of claimants in the period before the coronavirus epidemic.
According to experts, because the coronavirus and the influenza virus are infected at the same time, the vaccine is of paramount importance. The free vaccine can be requested by anyone and should be reported to the GP.
The vaccine contains inactivated influenza virus, and the vaccine contains three types of influenza strains. These were selected by the World Health Organization in accordance with the recommendations for the current influenza season.
The double infection, the flu and the Covid infection together can carry fatal complications – this is what István Kovács, a general practitioner, argues in favor of vaccination against influenza.
It can cause more severe symptoms due to a double infection, even with the Covid-19 vaccine.
“These viruses create immune responses that extend throughout the body, a so-called cascade response that can have unpredictable effects on other organs, the lungs, the heart, the kidneys, and the brain,” he said.
In addition to recommending the flu vaccine, your GP will also recommend a third dose of the coronavirus vaccine to patients. However, at least two to three weeks should elapse between the administration of the two vaccines.
