Every year people in Austria can get vaccinated against the flu. The vaccination is again free of charge for children and the elderly in nursing homes this year. Children can be vaccinated from 6 months of age. The Ministry of Health announced on Thursday.
With the vaccinations, fewer people should get the flu. That should also help with the Corona crisis. Because then fewer flu patients need a place in the hospitals. The flu season starts at the end of December and vaccinations start in October.
