Ministry of Health Urges Free Influenza Vaccination Amidst Flu Season


REAL NEWS: As this country and the rest of the Caribbean are going through what is known as “the flu season,” the Ministry of Health, Wellness, Social Transformation and the Environment is urging infection prevention
during this time.

Health officials say the influenza virus continues to affect the region, and so residents are being reminded to exercise methods to prevent the spread of the virus.

Reportedly, Influenza A and B viruses are responsible for seasonal flu epidemics seen each year, usually between October and

And according to health officials, recognizing the symptoms early is crucial for prompt medical attention and preventing further spread.

The virus can be prevented by the influenza vaccine, local officials say, and this is available to the public, at no cost, at the main health centres.

Citizens and residents are being encouraged to utilize this service and other preventive measures. In addition to getting vaccinated, they are urged to practice good hand hygiene and avoid close contact with sick persons.

Social and physical distancing; cough and sneeze etiquette; and sanitization of frequently touched surfaces are also recommended.

The Ministry of Health explains that the influenza A virus is spread mainly by droplets when people with the flu speak, cough, or sneeze.

Less often, however, a person might contract the flu by touching a surface or an object that has the flu virus on it, and then touching their own mouth, nose, or eyes.

Symptoms of Influenza A include fever, cough, sore throat, runny or stuffy nose, muscle or body aches, and headaches. In some instances, individuals may have vomiting and diarrhea.

Health officials say that illnesses can be mild or severe – but can lead to death, especially in the elderly and children, who are more susceptible to severe disease and complications such as pneumonia.

Accordingly, particular attention must be paid to these age groups if they exhibit flu-like symptoms.

    In a landmark UK legal court case (brought by the Scot family that I recently highlighted), the AstraZeneca vaccine has been branded DEFECTIVE. Now many more vaccine injured legal cases are set to follow.

    Furthermore, the European Union have now joined the list of concerned nations questioning the efficacy and performance of AstraZeneca.

    The other nations are:

    Germany, 🇩🇪 France, 🇫🇷 Spain, 🇪🇸 and Italy. 🇮🇹 These countries have suspended using this particular vaccine due to the ongoing problems and serious side-effects of blood clotting, brain hemorrhage and sudden deaths (SADS).

    Remember, Prime Minister Gaston Browne won’t tell you about this; Health Minister Molwyn ‘AstraZeneca’ Joseph will not tell you about this; Dr Sealey-Thomas will also hide herself away (again); and NEVER forget that great promoter of getting the Covid-19 vaccinations in Antigua & Barbuda (August 2021) Chet Greene will definitely not tell you about the current UK court case and the possible litigations that could come to these shores in the not too distant future.

    Brixtonian always looking out for ALL Antiguans whatever your political persuasions.

    • I’ve found many sources about this recently, but this source is from a UK barrister, that tackles a variety of legal issues and public concerns on his YouTube channel.

      Titled: ‘AstraZeneca Sued in High Court over Covid-19 vaccine’

      Brixtonian doing the work that our politicians should be doing. Peace ✌🏾

  2. The ministry of hell should use the funds allocated for flu vaccines and put it into fixing the MRI and CT machines at the hospital which seems to always be having problems.

  3. I am going to have a good day today tomorrow
    Please no more of those vaccine promotions
    No one is speaking about the increase in stroke

  4. Peter McCullough, the world renowned epidemiologist (now delicensed) who was right about the COVID poisons from the beginning was forced to rethink a lot of things since the pandemic. He was shocked to realize that the much touted flu shot is barely in the double digits in terms of efficacy. They still push it, why? For 2 reasons:

    – It’s what they’ve always done and it’s a sure source of income for its developers
    – The companies that made a very substantial investment in experimental technology for the COVID virus plan to repurpose their product as a COVID/flu shot (Interesting how they now acknowledge that COVID can be treated similarly to the flu).

    Now that the smoke has cleared our old friends, Ivermectin and Hydroxychloroquine stand out as very effective against most viruses. Big surprise.

    The purpose of PAHO is to systematically transform our health habits and overall public health to make it easier to apply the North American style health care business model to our region. Let’s not make it easier for them. Drink some bush tea. Go to the beach. Eat healthy and take care of yourself. If you want to take tablets, Zinc, Vit D and Vit C are very good for the Flu.

    Take care
