Influenza vaccine still recommended to be taken

The influenza epidemic has not yet reached Finland. The National Institute for Health and Welfare has only received information on single cases, so it is not yet a case of an epidemic. There is still time to get the influenza shot.

“Our recommendation is to give shots for as long as we have them and as long as it makes sense to give them in terms of the epidemic,” says Senior Physician Hanna Nohynek from the Institute.

“Even if an epidemic was raging, the vaccine is worth taking, for it won’t make it all around Finland. It takes almost two weeks for the protection to be completed.”
