THE International Stabilisation Force (ISF) medi-
cal team at Camp Phoenix in Dili helped deployed
soldiers fight the flu with a round of vaccinations in
Senior Medical Officer Capt Luke Jeremijenko said
200 ISF members had the flu jab.

in Dili increase transmission and it can have serious con-

"It's important to understand that immunity from the
2010 vaccine doesn't protect people against the winter
peak of 2011."
The success of the ISF's vaccination program has
been a team effort, with ADF medics and combat first
aiders helping out.
One of the major difficulties in conducting the vac-
cination process in East Timor is maintaining "cold chain
principals", which help ensure delivery of vaccines into
