With fall in full swing, flu vaccination begins

The weather may feel like summer, but with September already half-way done, health funds are starting to vaccinate Israelis against the flu.

The Clalit fund is already vaccinating members with “high risk” of contracting the flu, including babies and toddlers, the elderly and pregnant women. The fund purchased 1.1 million vaccines, the news site Ynet reports.

Another major fund, Maccabi Health Services, stock up on some 430,000 vaccines and is preparing to begin vaccinating its members on Sunday.

The remaining funds, including the IDF’s Medical Corps, will begin vaccinations at the end of the month.
