The best time to get the vaccination is before the start of the flu season (typically between June and September), as optimal protection is in the first three to four months after getting the shot and is generally expected to last throughout the year
It is recommended that all people over the age of six months get the annual influenza vaccination.
In 2019, over 300,000 people caught Influenza resulting in 705 deaths. Last year 2 million people got a Flu shot and along with social distancing, increased hand hygiene and school closures due to the pandemic all contributed to a massive decline in flu diagnoses and deaths in 2020.
As the Covid vaccine cannot be given within 14 days, it is important to be organised
