Influenza vaccination is especially recommended for

  • People of all ages with chronic diseases;
  • People aged 75 and over;
  • People in contact with vulnerable people;
  • Pregnant women (2nd-3rd trimester);
  • Health care workers.

Vaccine against pneumococcal infections will be offer for people 65 and older and people with certain diseases.

Having a flu shot is the best way to protect yourself and others. It is important to prevent the ’flu in people who are more vulnerable or at risk of developing complications: the elderly, babies aged 6 to 23 months, individuals who have a chronic illness, pregnant women and healthcare workers. People who are in contact with persons at risk are also advised to get vaccinated to avoid giving the ’flu to them.

Here are some simple things you can do to prevent infection by one of the ’flu viruses:

  • Keep your hands clean by washing them regularly;
  • Cough and sneeze into the crook of your elbow;
  • Avoid touching your nose, eyes and mouth. These are points of entry for viruses and bacteria;
  • Since the viruses can survive on hard surfaces for at least 48 hours, clean surfaces touched by a person with the ’flu, for example, doorknobs, light switches, keyboards, computer mice, telephones and remote-control devices;
  • Avoid contact with people at risk if you have the ’flu.

Please note that the vaccine you received last year is no longer valid, because the flu virus changes every year.

You wish you a happy and healthy winter!
