Flu vaccination

Gesundheitszentren / 13. Oktober - Dezember 2021

Thanks to precautionary measures to counter COVID-19, the wave of flu simply didn’t happen in Switzerland, Europe or the rest of the world. In winter 2020/21 there were only isolated cases of flu in Switzerland. But that doesn’t mean it’s disappeared. As soon as the precautionary measures have been largely relaxed, we’ll see the usual waves of flu in winter again (Federal Office of Public Health FOPH, 2021).

This year, ifa will again offer a flu vaccination campaign at the ideal time for vaccination in mid-October to mid November at your company location and at our health centers in Baden, Birr, Turgi and Oerlikon.

The most effective prevention against the flu is vaccination

Do the flu-vaccination-check.

At the moment it’s impossible to predict what the situation in terms of COVID-19 and the flu will look like next autumn and winter forecasts (FOPH, 2021).

The flu isn’t always harmless. Sometimes it leads to serious complications. The annual flu vaccination gives good protection from infection and the disease. In addition to people who have been vaccinated, it also protects those around them in their private lives and at work – including those who can’t have the vaccination themselves. (FOPH, 2021).

Following this year's WHO recommendations, we have again opted for a quadruple vaccine that covers all four virus strains.

Vaxigrip® Tetra

Split virus vaccine (Virus particles in fragmented form that contain haemagglutinin and neuraminidase and other virus components). 

- A (H1N1)
- A (H3N2)
- B (Yamagata)
- B (Victoria)

The vaccination should be repeated annually as seasonal flu viruses mutate from one year to the next and the vaccine is adapted every year.

You can calculate the costs individually for your company at www.arbeitsmedizin.ch/grippeimpfung using our application tool.

 

When should vaccination take place?

To give your immune system enough time to build up sufficient defences, vaccination should take place before the start of the flu epidemic (flu wave) if possible. The flu vaccination period lasts from mid-October until the start of the flu epidemic. In Switzerland, the flu wave usually does not start before the end of December, usually in January. Even with a flu vaccination in December, there is still enough time for the body's own immune system to build up vaccination protection.
