Influenza vaccinations will start at FSHS in November. Medical students and health and welfare students in higher education, as well as students belonging to a risk group can receive their influenza vaccinations from the FSHS free of charge.
Note! It is not yet possible to book appointments for influenza vaccinations. Follow our website, because instructions for booking a vaccination appointment and additional information on the practical arrangements will be published by the end of October. Unfortunately, we are unable to answer questions about flu vaccinations in advance over the phone.
The vaccination schedules will vary in different towns depending on the date of availability of the vaccines. The vaccinations will be carried out both as mass vaccinations and during appointments.
FSHS’s assignment is to firstly to take care of influenza vaccinations of social- and health care students. A person who belongs to a risk group can get vaccinated through the public sector as well. If you’re not a health and welfare student or don’t belong to a risk group but would like to receive the influenza vaccine, the FSHS can provide you with a vaccine prescription. You can then purchase the vaccine at a pharmacy at your own expense.
Students in higher education can receive their vaccination in their place of study – either at an FSHS service unit or a partner service unit. Students can visit any FSHS service unit for their vaccination, but partner units will only vaccinate students in higher education studying in these towns.
