Israel Throws Out 1.5 Million Flu Vaccines Due to Lack of Demand
The 2020-2021 winter has seen zero cases of flu after Israel ordered four million doses of flu vaccine.
According to Israel Hayom, the health funds are now tossing 1.5 million doses of flu vaccine, after no one requested them.
The interest in flu vaccines dropped when the coronavirus vaccines arrived in Israel, and due to the lack of cases. However, a relatively high percentage - 25.6% - of Israelis received this year's flu vaccine. Last year, 24.6% of Israelis received the flu vaccine, compared to 18% and 19% during the previous two years.
Israel's Health Ministry prepared for the winter, during which there were expected to be simultaneous outbreaks of both flu and coronavirus. However, data from the Israel Center for Disease Control showed that not a single lab test was positive for flu this year. (INN / VFI News)
