30th November 2013
Kreta Ayer Community Club – from 2 pm to 5 pm
The staff of Infectious Disease Specialists Group partnered with the Buddha Tooth Relic Temple and the Kreta Ayer Senior Citizens Activity Centre to provide free influenza vaccination to elderly residents of Kreta Ayer.
As this is the 4th consecutive year where the Group provides free influenza vaccination, it was much easier for our partners, the Temple and the Activity Centre to gather the residents. They came willingly and were very happy to meet the staff and Doctors again. For the less mobile residents, a team of nurses went to their flats to administer the influenza vaccination to them. Altogether 400 residents were vaccinated.
Member of Parliament, Dr Lily Neo was there to grace the occasion and she also helped to vaccinate several of the elderly.
We also wish to thank Glaxo SmithKline for helping us with vaccine procurement at a reduced price.
