Flu Vaccine

The flu vaccine is specific to each winter in Ireland and should be taken between September and October for maximum protection. Flu vaccination is particularly advisable for elderly people, international travellers visiting Ireland and other high-risk categories.

Why should I get the flu vaccine?

  • The flu vaccine may lead to slight side effects which would fade quickly, but it certainly does not give you the flu.
  • By getting vaccinated, you drastically reduce the risk of passing on flu symptoms to people with compromised immune systems. For example, older relatives or people with chronic health conditions would suffer badly from catching the flu.
  • Even in cases where the vaccine does not completely prevent the onset of flu, the severity of the symptoms would be far lesser than if you refused vaccination.
  • Most health insurance providers would cover the costs of flu vaccination, as it is generally considered preventive treatment.
