The influenza vaccination is especially recommended for people who have professional or private contact with sick or elderly people or babies.

Who is at the risk of contracting influenza due to professional and/or private reasons can also consider getting an influenza vaccination.

Currently, the cost of the influenza vaccination at the pharmacy is not officially covered by the compulsory health insurance. However, it has been our experience that the health insurance companies often pay the costs (minus deductible and excess) if the invoice is sent in. This is especially true for people 65 years and older and those at increased risk of complications. Depending on the supplementary insurance, part of the costs may also be covered. To be on the safe side, we recommend asking the respective health insurance company in advance.
