The Abu Dhabi Health Services Company (SEHA) announced on Monday that it will administer the seasonal influenza vaccine for free to all residents of the emirate.

Additionally, residents of Abu Dhabi and Al Aincan opt to receive the vaccine at their residence by opting for SEHA’s home service, available for a flat fee of Dhs500 per household.

“Both Covid-19 and influenza viruses exhibit similar symptoms, underlining the importance of getting immunised this year to stay protected and alleviate the pressure on the healthcare sector.

“We are also in the process of immunizing all our employees, as part of our annual campaign. The safety and wellbeing of our staff is held in the highest regards – maintaining our health is important to ensure the delivery of continuous care to the community,” she added.
