How do I get the flu shot?

Between approximately October and March, the influenza virus affects between 2 and 6 million French people each year. This highly contagious disease, which evolves every year, can be serious in people at risk.

Since October 26, the vaccination is open to people over 65, people under 65 with certain chronic diseases, pregnant women and people with obesity. Health professionals and people who care for babies are also eligible.

The first results of the campaign are not as good as last year. Only 5.6 million vaccines were withdrawn from pharmacies by priority people, up from 6.7 million in 2020 in the same period. But it should take a new step since, since Monday, November 22, vaccination is open to all.

Where to get vaccinated and at what cost?

If you are one of the people affected by the vaccination recommendation, you should have received a receipt sent by your health insurance fund, which will allow you not to pay for the vaccine.

In this case, for adults, you must show this voucher at a pharmacy to pick up your vaccine. Then you can get vaccinated by the healthcare professional of your choice: doctor or midwife (for pregnant women and those around the baby), nurse or volunteer pharmacist. For minors, you should first consult your doctor, then follow the same instructions as for adults.

Finally, for non-priority people, health insurance does not reimburse for the vaccine. It costs about ten euros. Please note that they cannot be vaccinated by a volunteer pharmacist. Only doctors and nurses can inject the vaccine.
