Why this particular recommendation in 2020?
Seasonal flu and COVID, even though they are caused by very different viruses, induce identical symptoms: fever, cough, fatigue, muscle pain. Diagnosis will therefore be easier if an infected person presents these symptoms, but has been vaccinated against flu.
Who can give flu vaccinations?
Doctors, nurses, midwives, pharmacists, as well as the Principality's medical biologists can vaccinate against flu.
Please note: This year, persons having received a care voucher have priority for vaccination by the health professional of their choice.
Arrangements for health insurance cover
All those insured by CCSS and CAMTI can benefit from 100% reimbursement of this vaccination, with no conditions about age* or health.
* a medical prescription is essential for children
