The following categories of people are first priority to receive the vaccination:
children 6-23 months of age and their family members;
persons over 50 years of age;
adults and children with chronic heart or diseases or diabetes;
people with weakened immune systems, such as those with HIV, or those who have taken steroids for an extended period;
pregnant women (only the second trimester);
health care workers and others who are often in contact with flu patients.
For corporate clients, we offer a vaccination program with a visiting doctor at your office.
We use the Ultriks vaccine, which provides reliable protection against the flu and is well tolerated. The composition of the vaccine is fully compliant with World Health Organization requirements.
allergic reaction to chicken protein and vaccine components;
acute febrile illness or exacerbation of a chronic disease. (Vaccination is carried out after recovery or remission);
allergic reactions to the influenza vaccine in the past;
pregnancy and breastfeeding;
younger than 6 years of age.
For non-severe acute upper respiratory infections or acute intestinal illnesses, vaccination is performed after the body temperature has returned to normal.
After vaccination, people very rarely get sick with the flu. In case of illness the disease is milder, allowing you to quickly return to the normal rhythm of life. In addition, it significantly reduces the risk of transmitting influenza to family members, friends and colleagues.
