Flu Vaccination Centers Opened at Shopping Malls in Saudi

Vaccination centers have been introduced at shopping malls in Saudi by the health ministry to intensify its nationwide campaign against seasonal flu.

The centres are located in Sahara Mall in Riyadh, Universal Plaza in Jeddah, Mall of Dhahran and Taif complex in Taif city.


Abdulaziz bin Saeed, deputy minister of public health, had launched the campaign two weeks ago in Riyadh to cover at least 1.5 million people in all parts of the country.

Speaking about the second phase of the vaccination campaign, which was launched on October 22, Health Ministry spokesman Faisal Al-Zahrani said there will be separate vaccination centres for men and women.

The seasonal flu vaccine protects against the influenza viruses that research indicates will be most common during the upcoming season. Traditional flu vaccines, called "trivalent" vaccines, protect against three flu viruses - influenza A (H1N1) virus, influenza A (H3N2) virus and influenza B virus.
