As the weather is getting colder and the winter is approaching, it is once again the time to take the influenza vaccine. The seasonal influenza usually affects about 10% of the adult population each year. The likelihood of coming down with influenza can be reduced through vaccination. The influenza vaccine must be renewed every year, since the strains of the influenza virus are different every year.
The influenza vaccines given at Mehiläinen do not cause a risk of narcolepsy.
Many are familiar with the word “influenza”, but it is often incorrectly considered to be the same thing as a cold or what is commonly called the flu. However, the influenza’s effects are much more severe than those of the flu.
You can get the influenza vaccine from the majority of clinics without booking an appointment.
You can also book yourself an appointment by calling our customer-service centre. We can book you an appointment with a nurse or occupational health nurse.
