The vaccine against flu has been available from home physicians and vaccines have been shipped Wednesday.

Zsuzsanna Molnárr, chief epidemiologist at the OEK's Vaccine Department, said vaccine delivery was completed on Wednesday. He added: In Hungary - like in the past years - 1.3 million doses of flu flu vaccine can be obtained without a prescription. This time, the vaccine is also free for those who come into contact with migrants during their work or in organized assistance.
Compared to the year of thought, the composition of the vaccine developed for the 2015/2016 season has changed in terms of two influenza viruses, and has expanded the range of people who can receive vaccine coverage free of charge. The flu surveillance service has been running since early October, but for the time being, very few people seek medical help with flu-like symptoms. In Hungary, this occurs in the months of February to March.
In our country 2015 йv 3-11. a high-intensity influenza outbreak spread throughout the country between one and two weeks ago. During this period, more than half a million people sought a doctor with flu-like symptoms. The influenza outbreak in Europe has affected far more cases in other countries than in the previous season. In the first quarter of 2015, 15 European countries, including Hungary, showed excess mortality among those aged 65 and over, who have been reported to have owned influenza and its events. Protection against influenza, the most effective way to prevent the disease, is vaccination.
Each year, the World Health Organization (WHO) and the European Medicines Agency (EMA) make a recommendation for the composition of the vaccine, based on the most frequently identified viruses in the previous season. The vaccine used in the previous influenza season showed a change in A / H3N2 and component B.
In 2015/2016. Seasonal vaccine against trivalent influenza is recommended for:
  • A / California / 7/2009 (H1N1) pdm09-fold color
  • A / Switzerland / 9715293/2013 (H3N2) -like virus
  • B / Phuket / 3073/2013 fold

  • The efficacy and safety of new formulations of influenza vaccines should be demonstrated to all manufacturers through clinical trials.
    In our country, as in the past years, there are 1.3 million vaccines available for vaccination against at-risk influenza. All persons over 60 years of age, with the exception of those eligible for non-prophylactic vaccination, are also affected, such as those with asthma, diabetes, cardiovascular disease, and women of color. You can find detailed information about eligible people at www.antsz.hu/influenza and contact your home doctor for information. The pure vaccine is available from home doctors and can be administered to them.
    The BNTSC also recommends the administration of a flu vaccine to those who are not eligible for a vaccine free. The vaccine can be obtained from their pharmacy on medical prescription. Influenza is a disease that causes unpleasant symptoms, and usually heals within a few days without any symptoms. At the same time, patients with severe disease may require hospitalization, even machine repair, and in some cases may be fatal. Vaccination is the most effective, safe and cheapest way to prevent influenza. It is best to ask for flu protection in the autumn. The BNTSZ recommends that the vaccine be administered by December at the latest, who wish to effectively control the infection.
    Baby Room: Among people who are more likely to have severe flu, they are strongly recommended to receive the vaccine. There is a virus in the vaccine, so it can be considered safe. What is important: the defense extends to the fetus, and even after birth, the little one has been defending against the virus for years. This is also valid if the vaccination is stopped before becoming pregnant.
