Vaccination against seasonal influenza 2021
Vaccination against seasonal influenza is recommended for at-risk groups, health and social care staff and household contacts
Particularly with a pandemic in progress, it is important to achieve a high rate of vaccination coverage against influenza among people in at-risk groups and health and social care staff, to protect people who risk becoming severely ill because of an influenza infection. The Public Health Agency of Sweden therefore recommends that certain groups should have priority for vaccination during the autumn. Vaccination of these groups will begin around 9 November. Other groups (the general public) can be offered vaccination from 6 December.
Members of staff are referred to health centres or vaccination offices
Previa will not be able to offer vaccination against seasonal influenza this year, because of a limited number of vaccine doses. This applies to both at-risk groups and other people. We therefore refer you to health centres or vaccination offices. This applies to staff both in Uppsala and at Campus Gotland.
Members of staff who belong to an at-risk group (or are household contacts of such a person) can receive a free vaccination at a health centre or vaccination office. Other members of staff who are offered vaccination/have their vaccination approved by their head of department/equivalent will be reimbursed for their expenses. To receive reimbursement, register your own expenses in Primula Web (normal expenses, i.e. not healthcare reimbursement).
