The schedule of vaccinations: against the flu

Immunization against influenza is recommended for people over 65, as well as for those who have essential activities (exams, contests ...) during the winter period.

It is recommended in patients and even children from the age of six months suffering from chronic diseases (heart failure, respiratory, diabetes ...).

Immunization against influenza is also recommended for parents (and relatives) with infants under six months particularly fragile, to be vaccinated against the flu to avoid being infected and transmit the virus to the newborn.

It is strongly recommended for aircrew in airplanes and on cruise ships as well as people traveling in groups.

Ask your doctor for advice, he will guide you.
