Ahead of an expected severe influenza outbreak, Malta’s government will be offering flue and COVID-19 vaccines in a few weeks, with vulnerable individuals and those aged over 55 to be given priority.

Deputy Prime Minister and Health Minister Chris Fearne suggested that both vaccines should be taken at the same time, with authorities highlighting that COVID vaccines are to become a yearly effort.

In a recent press conference, Fearne revealed that the Omicron and flu jabs will be offered separately, encouraging the public to take them on the same day. The jabs will reportedly be administered in different arms.

“It’s important to take the necessary precautions… as we have become used to taking. And the best way to do so, especially this year, is to get vaccinated,” Fearne stated.

Public health chief Charmaine Gauci revealed that only four patients are currently in Mater Dei with COVID-19, none of them admitted to the ITU.

5 things you didn’t know about laser hair removal treatment

5 things you didn't know about laser hair removal treatment
Oct 6 2022 Share

If you yearn for clearer & smoother skin whilst wanting to enjoy a long list of skincare-related benefits, it may be a sign that you should consider laser hair removal treatment.

Whether you’re after a complete laser hair removal package or just want a touch-up session, MC Pharmacy & Clinics have got you sorted with everything you’ll ever need and, that said, here are 5 things you didn’t know about laser hair removal treatment:

The process is pretty smooth

Laser hair removal basically removes hairs by sending a laser light through one’s hair pigments. Via MC Pharmacy’s Candela Gentlelase Pro technology, the light converts to heat and damages the hair follicle and hair bulb, thus inhibiting or delaying future hair growth. Thankfully, the laser technology used in the treatments comes with a cooling mechanism which blasts cool air where the laser was pointed. Making the experience smooth and effortless.

It has more than one benefit

Beyond liberating you from those pesky excess hairs, laser hair removal also helps with the reduction of ingrown hairs and irritation of skin. Professionals have revealed that such a treatment encourages hairs to grow straight, thus reducing or eliminating the possibility for ingrown hairs to grow.

It won’t break the bank

Oftentimes, people stray away from self-care treatments because they fear it will empty their pockets but you’ll be surprised to find out that a treatment like laser hair removal is actually quick, efficient and inexpensive. For example, MC Pharmacy’s current October offers on 1-year memberships are an absolute steal, with €315 for full-body treatments for females and €315 half-body for males.

Scooby Doo’s Velma comes out as lesbian in latest Scooby Doo trailer

Scooby Doo's Velma comes out as lesbian in latest Scooby Doo trailer
Oct 6 2022 Share

After years of speculation and fan theories, iconic Scooby Doo character Velma Dinkley has been confirmed to be a lesbian.

A number of clips from the crime-busting dog’s new Halloween special shows the fan favourite sleuth’s glasses fogging up as her cheeks go red when she meets the film’s villain Coco Diablo.

In another instance, Dinkley tells her friend and fellow investigator that she bewitched by the series’ villain, telling her: “I’m crushing big time Daphne! What do I do? What do I say?”

Scooby-Doo and the rest of Mystery Incorporated have been busting crimes and unmasking ghosts since 1969, with the nature of Velma’s sexuality being a hot topic amongst casual watchers and passionate fans alike. Over the past few years, fans seem to have been in agreement that Velma is queer, but this new trailer finally gives the nod from the franchise itself.

“OMG LESBIAN VELMA FINALLY CANON CANON IN THE MOVIES LETS GOOOOOO,” one Twitter user wrote to a supportive reception of over 200,000 likes as the social media sphere went into a frenzy.
