Flu Vaccination Program

The target groups for the Flu Vaccination Program have changed. To find out more, go to the Changes Made to the Program section.

Under the Flu Vaccination Program, the flu vaccine is offered free of charge to people who are most at risk of developing serious complications from the flu. The program aims to reduce hospitalizations and mortality in people who are most at risk. The aim is not to prevent all cases of flu.

In people who are at risk, the flu can, for example, cause breathing difficulties, pneumonia or even death. Treatment of these complications may require a hospital stay of several days, or even several weeks, and result in a loss of autonomy for some older adults.

Under the program, a vaccination campaign is held annually. The next vaccination campaign starts on November 1, 2019.
