    Deyals*ingh made this dis*clo*sure to the me*dia af*ter the of*fi*cial open*ing of the San*gre Grande En*hanced Health Cen*tre at Ojoe Road, San*gre Grande yes*ter*day.

    He ad*vised the pop*u*la*tion of Trinidad and To*ba*go to get the in*fluen*za vac*cine as it is be*ing of*fered at the na*tionís health in*sti*tu*tions free of charge.
    He said some peo*ple are lack*adaisi*cal as they nev*er seem to seek the in*ter*est of their own health.
