Pfizer Launches ‘Know. Plan. Go.’ Campaign to Raise Awareness About Viral Respiratory Diseases

Viral respiratory infections often peak over winter, but some can circulate year-round. Individuals with pre-existing chronic diseases must establish a well-thought-out plan regarding their healthcare needs to avoid progression into severe viral respiratory infections and worsening disease prognosis.

People with certain underlying health conditions, such as diabetes, heart or lung disease, high blood pressure, obesity, a weakened immune system, or age 60 and above, might be at higher risk of severe complications from common viral respiratory infections such as cold, flu or bronchiolitis.

Suppose an individual knows they or their loved ones may be more vulnerable to becoming sick from a viral respiratory infection. In that case, it is time to make a plan if they start experiencing symptoms such as fever or chills, cough, congestion or runny nose, or headache.

The plan involves knowing who to contact and where to go for treatment, keeping an up-to-date list of any medications taken, including vitamins and supplements and being ready to share with the healthcare professional.

Acting on the plan quickly and speaking to the healthcare professional can be vital in helping to prevent serious illness, which could include hospitalisation.

Therefore, Pfizer’s ‘Know. Plan. Go.’ Campaign focuses on three pillars “Know if you or a loved one is at high risk for severe complications from viral respiratory infections,’ ‘Plan with your healthcare professional in case you catch a viral infection’, and ‘Go to the doctor if you are experiencing symptoms to discuss what treatments might be suitable for your illness’. Know. Plan. Go encourages people to be proactive by being informed, prepared, and ready to act.

Dr Nadine Tarcha, Pfizer’s Gulf Medical Director, shares, “By shedding light on the importance of raising awareness for viral respiratory diseases in Gulf countries, we equip individuals with knowledge about transmission risks, symptoms, and prevention strategies. ‘Know. Plan. Go.’ empowers communities to make informed decisions, promotes early detection and treatment, and saves lives. Together, we can create a healthier and more resilient community.”  The World's Best & Most-Trusted Source of Arabic Content
