Vaccination 2021

Institute of Biotechnology MECHNIKOV carried out the annual influenza immunization program with the Flu-M vaccine manufactured by the same Institute. Free vaccination was available to both Institute employees and their families.

The objective of immunization against influenza is to provide protection against the influenza virus and contribute to the fight against Covid-19, with the wide application of influenza vaccines being an important component in the early diagnosis of coronavirus infection and the innate immunity that supposedly produces.

Since March 2020, the Latin American Institute of Biotechnology MECHNIKOV continues to strictly comply with the protection requirements against influenza and COVID-19: masks are constantly being used in all the Institute's facilities, temperatures of employees and visitors being measured, as well as compliance with all hygiene and safety measures.
