Operation Vaccination is a campaign initiated in late 2020 to increase awareness in Muslim communities about the importance of getting a flu vaccination in winter.
Flu affects our immune system, making it easier for us to contract other infections, like COVID-19 or pneumonia, and can make other long-term illnesses worse. With Muslim communities having higher mortality rates of COVID-19 than any other faith group, flu threatens to further impact the health of our communities.
Operation Vaccination is a campaign initiated by the British Islamic Medical Association (BIMA) in late 2020 to increase awareness in Muslim communities about the importance of getting the flu vaccination this winter.
This campaign has the potential to save thousands of lives God Willing (insha’Allah), as past flu outbreaks have caused between 4,000 to 22,000 deaths in England alone.
