Influenza (flu) vaccination

Influenza (flu) vaccination

What is the flu?

Behind this is an infection caused by influenza viruses. Influenza is caused by viruses that are transmitted through droplets - for example when sneezing, coughing or talking. You can also transmit the viruses from hand to hand, for example when shaking hands or via contaminated objects (such as door handles). The risk of infection is particularly high where there are many people, for example in public transport, workplaces, schools or shopping centres.
The real flu (influenza) is sometimes hardly distinguishable from a harmless cold (flu-like infection). In about one third of cases, flu starts suddenly with a high fever and headache, sore throat and aching limbs. Dry cough and unusually strong exhaustion are also characteristic. In addition, sweating and sore throat are possible. However, it can also be severe and cause pneumonia, for example, and even lead to death.
Complications mainly affect people with pre-existing conditions and people of advanced age. Pregnant women also have an increased risk of pneumonia.

Who and when should be vaccinated?

The permanent vaccination commission (STIKO) recommends vaccination against influenza for all persons over 60 years of age.
There are other groups of people who may need a vaccination, you can find them here.

The flu vaccination must be repeated every year with the current, adapted vaccine, as flu viruses can change very quickly. The best time for this is in October/November, as it takes about 14 days for the vaccination protection to build up.


How is the vaccination carried out and what must be observed?

The flu shot is an inactivated vaccine. The vaccination is given into your upper arm muscle. Occasionally, the stimulation of the body's own defences after the vaccination may cause redness or swelling at the injection site, which may also hurt. General symptoms such as fever, chills or sweating, fatigue, headaches and muscle aches may also occur in the first few days after the vaccination. Such vaccination reactions usually subside after a few days.

What should I do?

To check whether you have been vaccinated, simply make an appointment to have your vaccination status checked at one of our Avi Medical practices and discuss with our medical team.

They will tell you whether you are already protected or whether you should receive a vaccination. Your doctors will also check whether there are other vaccinations that would be useful for you and will carry these out directly if necessary.
