Amid a spike in flu cases, the National Organization for Medicine (EOF) said Friday there are enough vaccines available for everyone in Greece who hasn’t had a jab yet to get one for this flu season.

EOF said that it has imported 2,100,000 vaccines so far this season.

Nonetheless, the rise in flu cases, which have so far led to 18 deaths, prompted the Health Ministry yesterday to order EOF to procure an additional 50,000 flu vaccines from abroad to deal with the situation.
