It’s flu season again and getting a vaccine against it reduces the risk of flu illness and hospitalization.
All Dubai Health Authority (DHA)-run primary health centres are offering residents in the emirate with affordable flu vaccine at AED50.
Meanwhile, the seasonal influenza vaccine is offered free for Emiratis, elderly residents above the age of 65, pregnant women, people of determination, and children below the age of five years.
The vaccination is being offered on a walk-in basis in three DHA Medical Fitness Centres in Jumeirah Lake Towers, Uptown Mirdif and City Walk (Smart Salem Centre) from Sunday to Thursday from 7am to 7:30pm.
Residents can also get the vaccine at DHA Primary Healthcare Centres, including Al Badaa, Al Lusaily, Al Mankhool, Al Safa, Nad Al Sheba, Zabeel, Mizhar, and Twar primary centres. Residents need to book an appointment before getting the vaccine. They are open from Sunday to Thursday, from 7:30am to 9:30pm.
