The flu vaccine is carried out 1.5 months before the expected epidemic; Do not forget that not only the flu is dangerous, but also other acute respiratory viral infections, from which the vaccine does not protect. Therefore, it is important to use an antiviral agent for prevention - apply Viferon gel to the nasal mucosa twice a day and rinse the nasal cavity with sea water
All the best to you!
Best of all is BEFORE the start of the epidemic rise in incidence.
. it is impossible to say exactly when the rise will begin, so the vaccination program starts early.
But usually the rise begins in December (see image below).
Those who, due to age / health, should receive 2 doses, should take the first dose as early as possible so that the second dose , administered at least 28 days later, was given before the onset of the rise in incidence.
If you only need one dose, then it is optimal to have time to get vaccinated before the end of October-November. Remember, the vaccine is not a scalp pill that starts working in 15 minutes! Our immune system needs about 2 weeks to develop an immune response to vaccination!
