“Since the beginning of the influenza vaccination campaign in the Autonomous Region of Madeira (RAM), September 27, 2021, more than 18,000 vaccines have been administered, which makes up the total number of vaccines already received in Madeira”, reads a note distributed by the office of the Secretary of Health of the archipelago.

In the document, the health authorities of the autonomous region highlight the “strong adherence” shown by the population to this type of vaccine, which contributed to their “quick depletion”.

The note said that the region has scheduled the reception of more vaccines during this week.

“In light of the above, we inform you that currently the vaccination centers will only provide the population with the vaccine against Covid-19”, he adds.

The health authorities conclude that “as soon as more vaccines against the flu in Madeira are received”, the population will be duly informed.
