Ragn­heiður Ósk Er­lends­dótt­ir, the manager for healthcare at the Primary Care Health Centers in the capital region says that everything went well today, but she would have liked to see more people accept the Influenza shot.

A big number of people in their 80s already have been vaccinated with the fourth dose for Covid-19, but still have not had their influenza shot. She hopes that more people in that vulnerable group shows up to get protection against the annual influenza.
