Influenza vaccines help to prevent the flu, a common infection caused by influenza virus types A and B.
It takes at least 2 weeks for protection to develop after vaccination. Flu symptoms include fever, chills, headache, feeling tired, muscle aches, sore throat and cough.
The flu vaccine is recommended for everyone and especially in people who are at high risk of developing influenza complications such as the elderly and pregnant women.
Please note that consultation and administering of vaccinations are strictly by appointment only.
