The importance of getting your flu vaccine amid COVID-19

Lobang: https://www.moneydigest.sg/the-importance-of-getting-your-flu-vaccine-amid-covid-19/

Truth be told, I used to think that the influenza vaccine is a travel vaccine. Dr Leong Choon Kit from Mission Medical Clinic identifies that the idea is a common misconception among people.

“So they may assume that since they are not travelling, the influenza (jab) is not needed,”  he said.

Decline in people getting the flu vaccine

Doctors revealed the drop in the number of people getting the flu jab. They attributed it to the circuit breaker period and a general reluctance to visit clinics during the pandemic.

Dr Leong shared that the Ministry of Health (MOH) had previously advised against going to clinics for elective vaccinations. In addition to that, many people are trying their best not to visit clinics at the moment.

“I think most people are distracted by the COVID-19 outbreak,” he said.

As advised under the MOH’s National Adult Immunisation Schedule, one dose of influenza vaccination is recommended annually or per flu season.

“This is for optimal protection against circulating influenza viruses, especially when the symptoms of influenza and COVID-19 are similar and not easily distinguishable,” said MOH.

Flu season usually highest at the end of the year

“There will be a challenge to distinguish flu symptoms from COVID symptoms as both diseases circulate simultaneously. Getting flu shots will hopefully reduce the background noise,” Farrer Park Hospital’s infectious diseases specialist Dr Lam Mun San said.

Dr Leong adds that it is more important for the population to be vaccinated against influenza now. Compared to the other years, there’s an even more urgent need this year.

Dr Barnaby Young from the National Centre for Infectious Diseases’ (NCID) advises us to follow MOH’s advice on vaccinations.

“Vaccinations are safe and effective at preventing influenza infections, they can reduce the strain on clinics and hospitals during flu season, and will protect vulnerable people in the community.”

NCID’s clinical director Dr Shawn Vasoo also explained from a public health and resource perspective. Minimizing influenza rates or preventing it may put less strain on testing resources and better use of hospitalisations or isolation beds for patients who might need it more.

Dr Vasoo also shared that with the easing of borders and social restrictions in the community, our country may see a rise in acute respiratory infections and COVID-19 cases.

“Getting an influenza jab can help to prevent and decrease the circulation, morbidity and consequences from both diseases and is therefore a useful tool, both at a public health and at an individual level,” he added.

Don’t Say Bojio: Up To 90% Off Brand New Books (Over 40,000 Titles!) At Big Bad Wolf Online Book Sale

Lobang: https://goodyfeed.com/big-bad-wolf-booksale/

Usually, the phrases ‘big bad wolf’ and ‘discounted books‘ would not mix in the same sentence.

After all, one’s an often misunderstood creature who just wanted to preserve an old lady’s legacy for eternity, and the other fiendish entities that hook up with your hard-earned cash.

Truly, they are as different as they come.

Yet, it seems that just like the yin and yang, these two notions have come together.

Though it would surely be a boon for all the book lovers out there, considering the sheer discount rates the books are going at.

Don’t Say Bojio: Up To 90% Off Brand New Books At Big Bad Wolf Booksale

According to Mothershipthe Big Bad Wolf Book Sale will be hitting the shores of Singapore this 15-18 October.

Shoppers will have access to millions of books and 40,000 book titles, both fiction and non-fiction, at up to 90% off recommended retail prices.

The sale will be exclusively online, with all books presented in brand-new condition.

Genres and categories of books at the sale include:

  • Bestseller titles
  • Novels
  • Science fiction
  • Romance
  • Literature
  • Graphic novels
  • Business books
  • Self-help
  • Architecture books
  • Cookbooks, and more

Books catering to children, such as activity books, board books, colouring books, picture books and interactive books will be included as well.

During the duration of the sale, shoppers will be able to order on the site and have their purchased item(s) shipped directly to them.

Postponed

The sale was originally scheduled for 17 to 20 September 2020, but the dates were delayed due to a longer review process for the e-commerce site.

Apparently, the team at Big Bad Wolf intended for the site to “work impeccably […] for a great online experience,” which ultimately led to the decision.

According to the company, the books are excess stocks from international distributors.

The Big Bad Wolf Sale

Lest you’re wondering, the Big Bad Wolf Book Sale is not the first of its kind.

Since its introduction in 2009, the company has travelled to the likes of South Korea, Taiwan, Thailand, Malaysia and many more countries.

A positive notion for book lovers all around Asia, I bet.

However, it should be noted that previous instances have been physical in nature. 2020 marks the first virtual Big Bad Wolf Book Sale since its inception.

No prizes for guessing who’s the culprit for it going online.

Though the sale will only officially commence on 15 October, you can register for priority access to their preview sale on 14 October.

And considering how the books are set to be priced at such heavily discounted rates, it may be wise to do some pre-sale preparations first.

And with that said…

Don’t say bojio ah. 😉

Because it’s time to get your hands on some really affordable books.
