Influenza in the air!

News

Oct 24, 2017

It’s that time of year again when influenza viruses are beginning to be active. Vaccination is a good way to protect yourself against influenza.

Those students who belong to any of the high-risk groups defined by THL (National Institute for Health and Welfare, available only in Finnish and Swedish) can get vaccinated at FSHS. Students who are not at high risk can call the FSHS to request a prescription and buy the vaccine from their local pharmacy. The FSHS will inject the vaccine (and it doesn’t hurt at all!).

Check your local FSHS unit’s webpage to see when and how vaccines are available in your area.
