Make time with Marcus Chin 抵抗肺炎,建康彬纷

25/03/2021 @ 8:00 pm - 9:00 pm


Leave no time for pneumonia!

Did you know that pneumonia is the second leading cause of death[1]and third leading cause of hospitalisation?[2] Seniors 65 and above are at higher risk of getting pneumococcal pneumonia.[3] Even if one is healthy, age is one of the risk factors as our immune system naturally weakens.[4] Fret not! Seniors can empower themselves by protecting themselves against the disease with vaccination!3

Make time to join artiste Marcus Chin and Dr Leong Hoe Nam, Infectious Disease Specialist at Rophi Clinic, as they discuss about pneumococcal vaccination and Marcus’ vaccination journey in a one-hour Facebook Live session on 25 March 2021 (Thursday), 8pm. Learn how to protect yourself and your loved ones against the vaccine-preventable disease and have your pneumococcal vaccination-related questions answered.

Tune in to the Facebook Live show at https://www.facebook.com/Marcus.ChenJianBin, there is no time for pneumonia at 65!
