NFM Joins Influenza Fight

National Flour Mills Limited (NFM) joins the fight against the spread of influenza by collaborating with the Ministry of Health to offer free H1N1 vaccines to its employees. Grace Sookchand, Manager of the Ministry’s Expanded Programme on Immunization (EPI) and her team visited NFM’s head office on January 14, 2020. EPI’s accommodation of visits to large organisations forms part of their targeting strategy to protect citizens and restrict the spread of the virus. Although EPI’s focus on high risk groups remains a priority, it welcomes the favourable response received thus far from NFM and other companies. Both NFM and the Ministry are aware of the global challenges posed by the influenza virus and regard this proactive initiative as timely given the expected influx of visitors for the Carnival season.
