In 2020, La Manche pharmacies faced a very strong demand for influenza vaccination, running out of stocks very quickly and creating increasingly long waiting lists.

This year, there is still a vaccine craze, but less of a rush. Professionals have also taken their precautions, increasing their orders and receiving all their stock at once, and not necessarily in two or three times as in previous years.

Each one has been organized according to its storage capacity, its vaccination places and its human resources.


Last year, immunization coverage rose 8 points nationally, reaching 55.8%. Many people who received a voucher had benefited from the vaccine for the first time. There is still a long way to go to get closer to the 75% recommended by the World Health Organization.

Flu and Covid-19 at the same time

Activity in pharmacies remains strong at the end of the year. “Since the President of the Republic’s speech, we have received many calls from people who want to receive their booster dose,” continues the pharmacist, installed in the Mortainais. We have to start an entire organization because if the flu vaccine is distributed in pre-filled syringes, the one against Covid-19 requires more preparation and information gathering. Our primary mission continues to be to supply medicines and we are doing the best we can. “

For those eligible for the booster dose, the two vaccines can be administered simultaneously.

There are very few, if any, side effects with the flu vaccine.

Priority audiences (over 65s, pregnant women, people with ALD, etc.) with a voucher have priority until November 22. Then, all those who want to protect themselves from seasonal flu can benefit from a vaccine.
