With growing evidence suggesting that flu vaccines could provide certain protection against Covid-19, the government will start vaccination for the public in November.

Protection here primarily means reducing the strain on the health care system and hospital resources in the event of the second wave of the pandemic.

Health Minister Dechen Wangmo during a press briefing yesterday said that the ministry has started to provide flu vaccines to the high-risk population – health workers, pregnant mothers, people with comorbidities, elderlies above the age of 65 and children below the age of two – beginning last year.
