THE INFLUENZA VACCINE IS EFFECTIVE
The Finnish National Institute for Health and Welfare recommends that vaccination take place just before the epidemic begins, which in practice means in October/November. The desired immunity is achieved about two weeks after the vaccination.
The vaccine is given in the upper arm. The influenza vaccine should not be provided if you have had a severe allergic reaction to eggs. You should also not receive the vaccine if you currently have an infection with a fever. In such cases, the vaccination is postponed until the customer is healthy.
Season 2017-2018 we have the influenza vaccine called VaxigripTetra. The vaccine is given for adults and over 3-year-old children. The vaccine is now available!
The vaccination costs EUR 35, which covers the vaccine and the vaccination. There is no administration fee.
