Hospital Director Urges Flu Vaccines

Prof. Motti Ravid, the director of Mayanei HaYeshua Medical Center in Bnei Brak, urged people to obtain influenza vaccines following the tragic death of a four-year-old. "The influenza vaccine is vitally important especially for children who have never been vaccinated," he stated on Wednesday. "Although it is usually a mild disease, every year there are dozens of patients who come to the ICU due to lung infections," he added.
