The flu, known in Costa Rica as “quiebrahuesos”, is the leading cause of absenteeism from school, according to Hospital Nacional de Niños (Childre’s Hospital) pediatrician, Carlos Jiménez.

Last month, the Caja Costarricense de Seguro Social (CCSS) or Caja launched a vaccination campaign against the flu virus. Targeted by the campaign are children, pregnant women an seniors, the obese and persons with diabetes, asthma, severe lung and heart problems.

Jimenez stressed that although this campaign focuses on children with no risk factors, the vaccine can be purchased at most pharmacies nationwide.

The doctor also warned not apply to children under 6 months and recommended that the entire family get vaccinated.
