So it is difficult to distinguish between the two in the initial phase. Considering that coronavirus tests may sometimes not give 100% accurate results, the flu vaccine will be very important data in order to distinguish which disease the person has gotten. In other words, when a patient who has had the flu vaccine comes, we will understand that it is a coronavirus if these symptoms are present.
WHY ZATURRE VACCINE?
Underlining that the pneumonia vaccine is a much more important vaccine especially in this period, Dr. Ömer İnan Ayata said, “The pneumonia vaccine protects against pneumonia germs.

We think that a pneumonia vaccine should also be obtained to eliminate this possibility. "
