1 Answer:

Hello Yenny,

Thank you for the question.

Influenza immunization can help increase your immunity to the flu, which is a respiratory infection caused by influenza virus. As is known, although the symptoms are mild, the appearance of recurrent flu, especially in the transition season, can greatly reduce the productivity of sufferers. Not only that, the transmission of this disease is quite easy, especially in children and infants whose immune systems are still weak. If you are a medical person, pregnant woman, or someone who suffers from certain diseases, such as HIV, diabetes, chronic heart or lung disease, and asthma, then your risk of contracting this disease is also greater. Therefore, by being immunized, you and your family's risk of contracting this disease can be much smaller.

So far, there are 2 types of influenza vaccines, namely trivalent and quadrivalent vaccines. This vaccine, by WHO, is recommended to be given to children aged 6 months to 5 years, elderly people (65 years old), pregnant women, sufferers of chronic diseases, and medical workers. However, in Indonesia with a tropical climate, flu can occur at any time. Therefore, you and your husband may also get this vaccine.

It is better for you and your family to go and have your check up at the nearest health facility so that education is given regarding the type of immunization needed and the schedule for giving it right.

I hope this helps.
