Hugo López-Gatell, Undersecretary for Prevention and Health Promotion, said at a press conference that despite the fact that there is a decrease in cases of influenza, vaccination will be implemented as a priority in the groups of the population most at risk, which are the children and adults aged 60 and over.

People aged 60 years and older, along with those over six months and up to five years of life, should be vaccinated as a priority against this contagious respiratory disease caused by influenza viruses, which infect the nose, throat, and in some cases the lungs.
