Swine Flu Vaccination

Starting 26th October, swine flu vaccination will start in Germany. The costs will be covered by the Health Insurance.

The vaccines will be given first for:
  • People working in hospitals, pharmacies, first-aid workers and security personnel
  • Pregnant women
  • The elderly (those older than 60)
  • People with asthma and/or chronic illnesses (chronic bronchitis, mutliple scelerosis etc.)
  • HIV patients
The availability and distribution of the vaccines depend on various factors, so if you fall into any one of the above categories, please check with your doctor immediately.

Read more about it here (heads up: article in German, duh?) and remember to ask your doctor about it or at least google for information.

Be Careful and Stay Healthy !

Website Hit Counter I had decided to have a counter only after I hit a 1000 views and since it happened last week (as on 14 Dec 2009), now is the time to see some stats :)
