This page provides information about the flu vaccine and the coronavirus SARS-CoV-2. The flu vaccine is the best protection against the consequences of getting the flu (influenza). All GPs will take the coronavirus measures into account during the annual flu vaccination clinic. You can get the flu vaccine safely.

If you have symptoms, stay home and get tested

Do you have symptoms that could indicate the coronavirus (COVID-19), such as a nasal cold, runny nose, sore throat, sneezing, coughing, shortness of breath, sudden loss of smell or taste, elevated temperature or fever? Then you cannot come to the vaccination clinic. In that case, make another appointment with your GP practice. During the vaccination clinic, you will be asked again beforehand whether you have these symptoms.
