The Air Rescue Team of FEMERAID International informs all our members, Knights and Dames of the Sovereign Order of Saint John of Jerusalem, Knights of Malta, Federation of the Autonomous Priories (KMFAP) about the followings: 

As mentioned last week in our latest Health Alerts, the time of year to vaccinate against seasonal flu is approaching, which will coincide with the new COVID vaccine. Our mission is to provide guidance rooted in scientific evidence whilst anticipating potential scenarios so individuals can make informed decisions. 

If you have recently had COVID, it is advisable to wait 3 months before getting vaccinated. If you have received a booster shot recently, it is recommended to wait at least 2 months before considering taking the new COVID vaccine, which is effective at protecting against the prevailing variants. 

We continue to support vaccination of all vulnerable people, including those with the following diseases: 
Chronic kidney disease; 
Chronic liver disease; 
Chronic lung diseases; 
Cystic fibrosis; 
Dementia or other neurological conditions;
