The Flu Express, which was to take place tomorrow [December 1st] at the National Stadium Pavilion, has been postponed until Friday, December 3rd at National Stadium Pavilion.

A Government spokesperson said, “The seasonal influenza [flu] vaccine will be available for priority groups through their doctor or the Flu Express at the cost of $15.00 per shot [for both adults and children]. Persons over the age of 65 years will receive the seasonal flu vaccine free of charge.

“The Ministry of Health has launched an online flu vaccine registration. We invite the public to pre-register for the flu vaccine to minimise paperwork on arrival and reduce wait times.

“You can register online by going to the Government website https://www.gov.bm/. Click on the yellow tab ‘Flu Vaccine Registration’ on the top right-hand corner of the page, follow the consent prompt, and enter the required information. The direct link is https://forms.gov.bm/Influenza-Vaccine-Consent. An email will be sent to you and is required to be shown when you arrive for vaccination.

“Alternatively, persons can call the hotline at 799- 1524 / 332-8902 to pre-register. If you cannot pre-register online or by phone, you can fill out the consent at the vaccination express location.

“The flu vaccine is a safe and highly effective method of preventing most cases of flu. Side effects are rare and usually mild.”
