Vaccinations are an effective way of protecting against the onset of an infectious disease and also to prevent the aggravation of an existing infectious disease. The cost of influenza vaccinations is fully paid by the Health Insurance Society.
Influenza vaccine becomes effective approximately 2 weeks after the vaccination and the effect continues for approximately 5 months. You should receive the vaccination by the end of November, before the influenza season starts.
