If any of this applies to you, you should be vaccinated against influenza:

  • You are 65 years old or older (born in 1957 or earlier).
  • You are pregnant in week 12 or later.
  • You are pregnant before week 12 and one of the other points applies to you.
  • You live with someone whose immune system is severely weakened.
  • You have one of the following diseases or conditions:
    • chronic heart disease
    • chronic lung disease, such as COPD or asthma
    • any other condition that impairs lung function or makes coughing difficult
    • chronic liver or kidney failure
    • diabetes mellitus
    • any condition that entails a severe weakening of the immune system because of illness or medication.

You can be vaccinated against influenza and Covid-19 at the same time

It might be a good idea to be vaccinated against Covid-19 when you come to be vaccinated against seasonal influenza. Ask the staff at the vaccination clinic if they can give you both vaccines.
