    Flu vaccines running low as public scrambles to get vaccinated amid pandemic (2020/10/18)

    A simultaneous outbreak of the coronavirus and the flu is a frightening scenario, and to avoid it people of all ages have been flocking to get their flu shots this year. Currently, there are six million doses of free vaccines for those who are qualified, and 1.2 million doses that people can pay for at their own expense. However, as the vaccines have been dispensed faster than anticipated, the Health Ministry announced on Friday that adults between 50 and 64 years old were no longer qualified to get vaccinated for free.

    According to a doctor at a local clinic, the stocks will remain sufficient up until the end of the month. Come November, however, there's no guarantee that flu vaccines won't run out. Experts have also pointed out that getting inoculated with streptococcus pneumoniae can help prevent severe pneumonia. Many members of the public have been going for this inoculation instead.
