Israel: HMOs Offering Free Flu Vaccine

All four of the country's health maintenance organizations will provide free influenza immunizations this winter. First in line for the flu shots are nursing home residents, the chronically ill and healthcare workers. Clalit Health Services, Israel's largest HMO, has purchased 620,000 doses of the vaccine and has begun to immunize its members. Maccabi Healthcare Services has purchased about 250,000 doses.
