Yes, it has made it to Kuwait. A lot of people traveled to Europe/North America for the New Year, and came back either sick (or became sick shortly after returning). Did you get a flu shot? If not, it might not be too late.

I thought the flu shot was particularly ineffective this year.

Where can I get a flu shot (private hospital preferred) and how much does it cost?

Any idea if it is covered under insurance?

Most private clinics and hospitals have it.  I think its 5KD.  Most insurance don’t cover it.
