Where to get a flu shot at school

In the garden offer to get vaccinated against the flu Grippol plus. Is it worth it to do? Who did the child this vaccine will tell


Valya Shipilova

you are introduced a live flu vaccine well and how the body should react

Sergey M

Vaccinations are independent, no one has the right to coerce you! We did not!


I refused


never influenced my children


I have the same question NOW! read reviews in the I-t?? I have not read it yet, but I'll take a decision.. most likely I will refuse


I always vaccinate my three children and they fuck me pah pah do not get sick because other children who do not get vaccinated, they have bronchitis, then tonsillitis from friends... .
and my glory to God sometimes gets cold, but not much and not for long and often we suffer from cold diseases.
I am for!


We refused. This vaccination is not on the list of essentials. As my mother-in-law, a medic, said, the vaccine was invented, and it must be NOW! To justify the cost of its invention. Let them do it, but not in my child.

Whether the girl, or whether the vision

How many do not know the children, all after it get sick. So why bother if you still get sick? And you will not, maybe, and will not touch his flu. This is a private matter for everyone. But there is a feeling that children are experimenting with newly invented drugs ...

Inna Vityuk

The vaccine contains the most common types of influenza virus: type A (subtype A (H1N1), subtype A (H3N2), type B, so immunity will only be against these types. And it's not a fact that your child or you do not "catch" another strain of the influenza virus. And still, if you decide to vaccinate, then the child should be absolutely healthy, and after vaccination, within 2 weeks, to ensure that the child is not supercooled and try to avoid crowded institutions. Personally, I, having a medical education, do not plant either myself or my son, although I do not forbid anyone.

Elena Karnopova

The vaccine is being taken that would not have a complication after the flu.

At school, it is suggested to get a flu shot. Whether it is necessary to resolve? Did your children do it?


Tatyana Rogachkova

I refuse. And the flu (pah-pah-pah) never hurt. And those who do - ache after vaccination and then a second time, right now my daughter has a half-class at the hospital, tomorrow my son in the class will do, let's see how many children will then go to school.

Blumenthal Belvedere

I do, there are no problems

Your Family's Dream

do it all in a row because they have a plan.. but to do or not to your child is to solve the current to you... because the doctors do not answer for the consequences ...


We, adults, have already done at work. My son was at school, but now they are doing at the institute. All are still alive and well, which is what you want.


it's up to you. I personally refuse at school and at work

Baranchuk Ivan

As you wish. Our friends have been vaccinating their children for the last three years. Children every time after vaccination get sick in the week with a temperature, etc. signs of influenza and during the epidemic, too, because the strains rarely coincide. And we did not vaccinate our own once. Pah-pah-pah!


Must do, if at the moment there is no disease. Inoculations only improve immunity, but pimping with medicines during illness - kills it!


did 5 years ago.. The bastard at 12 years forged my signature and consent. .
since then does not even think about this vaccination.
hurted or was ill; was sick hardly and longly ..

Anna Chernovskaya

We did a daughter - she was sick for three months, 2 times in the hospital. The vaccine was Grippol.

наталья зуева

I what year I write the refusal on an inoculation

Angel in the flesh

I do not do it, it's all nonsense, I'm inoculated now, and what kind of virus we know only when the flu comes... I do not believe that in advance it is possible to create a vaccine, the virus passing from person to person is already mutating ...


I always write a denial of sense, then from her no

Love around the corner!

No, I always refuse, and if I decide better, I'll go to the polyclinic myself and do it.
I do not trust school nurses and kindergartens, either.
Did not. and like did not hurt (fie-fie-fie) sorry I hope nobody splattered

Anna Andreevna

I do not.. .
and I will not))))))))))))


Influenza do not do their own. Still it is not known what strains will be, and them in an epidemic up to 15 can wander.. Well and pljuch my allergik, a preservative in these inoculations more often connections of a mercury happens, and vaccines probably cellular.. Nafik need a live flu this is still ((

Tatyana Kolosova

Do not worry, the main syringe for a child buy yourself!

Maria Grachyova

My sister and I have refused all vaccinations.

Understand when and where to get a flu shot

Today everyone is talking about vaccination. Modern society is divided into two large camps: those who are for and who are against vaccination. In this article I want to tell you in which cases and where to get a flu shot.

Why this is necessary

Physicians have long been talking about the fact that vaccination against influenza is a very important time for the prevention of this disease. And although after the introduction of the vaccine is not always possible to avoid the disease, but still the flu then flows in mild form. And such problems as complications or infection in contact with a patient are completely impossible.

Who needs it?

Before you figure out where to get a flu shot, you need to say for whom it may be mandatory.

  1. Children age from 6 months to 18 years.
  2. People whose age is more than 50 years.
  3. Patients with chronic diseases of the lungs, bronchi, heart.
  4. Those who have such diseases as diabetes, anemia.
  5. Pregnant women (whose period of gestation is at least 14 weeks).

To whom the vaccination is contraindicated

Where to get a flu shot - this will be learned a little later. At the same stage, I want to tell you about whom this procedure is forbidden:

  1. People who have intolerance to chicken eggs. After all, the vaccine makes a mix of proteins and other medications.
  2. It is not recommended to vaccinate those people who had previous complications caused by previous vaccination.
  3. Do not inoculate those who have chronic illnesses or allergic reactions.

It is worth remembering that a fully healthy person should be vaccinated. If the patient recently underwent surgery, he had severe inflammatory processes, there is weakness or temperature - in this case, the vaccination should be postponed for about a month.

Where to do?

It's time to figure out where and where to get the flu shot. So, at the very beginning it is necessary to say that it is possible to pass the vaccination in any medical institution that has a state license. It can be not only an immunological center, but even an ordinary polyclinic. The procedure is carried out by a qualified specialist in the medical field in the vaccination room. The vaccination itself is carried out in two main ways:

  1. The method of injection.
  2. The method of instilling special drops in the nose, i.e., intranasally.

If vaccination is given by injection, then it can be done:

  1. In the upper third part of the arm, forearm.
  2. Alternatively, the vaccine can be injected into the hip.
  3. In the buttocks, vaccination is not carried out, because it is very difficult to get the muscles in this case. There is a risk of injecting the drug into the subcutaneous layer.

Intravenous, subcutaneous or intradermal administration of the vaccine is not applied, as it is ineffective.


When and where do they get the flu shot before the first year of life? Thus, vaccination of the youngest children should not be earlier than the 6th month of life. The medicine is introduced to children twice. This is very important, as for children such infection can be very dangerous. The injection of even the smallest patients is mainly done in the forearm. However, if the crumb does not or can not sit still, the child can be injected into the hip. For this, split vaccines are used primarily. They have minimal reactogenicity and maximum efficiency for this category of patients.

Older children

It is necessary to understand separately when and where the flu vaccine is given to children at the age of 12, older children and adolescents. So, it is necessary to vaccinate against this disease to all those children who attend children's educational institutions - kindergartens, schools. After infection with the influenza virus in student groups is extremely high. The injection is also done in the upper part of the arm. If the child is afraid of injections and does not want to take the vaccine, you can also enter the vaccine into the thigh (to keep the baby more comfortable in this position).


"Where do people get the flu vaccine for adults?" - a frequently asked question. Again, mainly in the arm (as an alternative, the vaccine can be injected into the thigh). It should also be said that it is also very important for adults to get vaccinated. After all, the incidence of them is also high. And the disease most often occurs with complications. And with age, the patient's body is harder to fight with various viruses and infections.

About vaccines

A few words should be said about the vaccines themselves. So, they are created separately for each region, taking into account multiple important factors. If there is a desire to be vaccinated, it is best to take the drug that offers a specialized medical institution. It is not recommended to buy a vaccine on your own. If vaccination is expected by injection, then the following drugs are most often used: Influvak, Grippol, Vaxigripp. If the vaccination is carried out intranasally, it is mainly used such a drug as "Ultravac".


Vaccination against influenza: contraindications. Do I need a flu vaccine?

Seasonal flu is a disease that affects millions of citizens annually. The most favorable time for the disease is autumn and winter, when human immunity is weakened and can not cope with viruses so effectively. Different strains of viruses can cause the development of an acute respiratory disease, but, despite the nature of the pathogen, the symptoms are very similar in all cases. The patient has a fever, a sore throat, a cold, a cough and a headache.

Inoculation against influenza

To prevent the onset of many infectious diseases, vaccination is given. After the opening of the first vaccine, doctors saved hundreds of millions of lives. Against the flu every year, millions of people are vaccinated, because the vaccine is today considered to be the main preventive method in the fight against infections.

Sometimes potential patients have a question: do I need a flu vaccine? The vaccine is a weakened viral material that can not reproduce in the body. When a vaccine material is introduced to a person whose set of proteins is identical to the active virus, his immune system starts producing antibodies against the virus.

Time for vaccination

To be vaccinated against the flu is best in the fall (from September to November), because the epidemic of the disease at this time is becoming a massive one. Inflammation is administered to children and adults. It is not recommended to vaccinate the vaccine in the spring or summer, as the amount of antibodies decreases with time, and the effect from it is not so strong.

You can get a vaccine against the flu even after the epidemic begins. If the vaccination was carried out and the next day the person was infected, the vaccine will not worsen the course of the disease. Much worse the flu will leak if such vaccinations are not done, even there is a risk of serious complications.

Who needs an inoculation

To date, inoculations are already done by infants from 6 months of age. There is a category of people who need a vaccination against the flu in the first place. In the high-risk zone, there are elderly people, patients who are on inpatient treatment, pregnant women. It is necessary to vaccinate children and adolescents (from 6 months to 18 years), especially if they have been using aspirin for a long time for the purpose of treatment. Such patients may have severe complications after the flu. This category includes people with problems of the kidneys, lungs, heart, with metabolic disorders, patients with immunodeficiency, with hemoglobulinopathies, with staphylococcal infection, as well as students and schoolchildren who are constantly are in society.

Vaccination against influenza: contraindications

The main material for the manufacture of the vaccine is chicken embryos. Not every organism is susceptible to them, and there are a number of cases when a flu vaccine is not recommended. Contraindications are primarily to those patients who suffer from an allergic reaction to chicken protein. It is not necessary to vaccinate people during the period of exacerbation of chronic diseases. Vaccination is undesirable for two weeks after the final recovery, because the body is weakened and may react incorrectly.

It is not necessary to inoculate patients with progressive forms of neurological diseases, as well as with an allergy to influenza vaccines.

What is the flu?

The disease belongs to the category of acute viral infections, is accompanied by a general infectious syndrome in severe form and affects the respiratory tract. Not all patients realize the full danger of this disease. In some cases, the flu begins with a cough, fever and a runny nose, and can end with the death of the patient. Statistics show that annually about 40 thousand people from developed countries die from the flu and complications caused by it.

Types of the causative agent of influenza

The causative agent of the virus is divided into three independent types: A, B and C. The constant mutation of the virus, which leads to a change in its antigenic structure, leads to the fact that qualitatively new varieties of the influenza virus actively appear and multiply. The danger for the population is that the immunity to them in the human body has not yet developed, so the virus affects the patient and can cause unpredictable complications. The transmission of the influenza virus from a sick person is carried out by airborne droplets, which allows it to spread to all categories of the population.

Influenza A type instantly spreads over vast areas and is pandemic or epidemic in nature. Local spread of the influenza B virus type allows recording its individual outbreaks and taking timely measures. Sporadic outbreaks of infections cause influenza type C.

Benefits of Inoculation

The vaccine helps the body develop a permanent immunity, which will help to avoid getting infected with the flu. If even a vaccinated person has taken up an infection, then the disease goes on without complications and in a lighter form than those who refused to vaccinate. Specific prophylaxis is carried out by live and inactivated vaccines. The vaccine against influenza for children over three years old is of domestic origin. Imported vaccines, which have all the necessary licenses, are intended for children between the ages of 6 to 12 months.

The maximum amount of antibody is reached 14 days after vaccination. The annual vaccination is explained by the fact that the vaccine provides the body with short-term immunity (6-12 months). Vaccination should be carried out before and during the epidemic season.

Vaccines against influenza

Vaccines aimed at fighting the flu are divided into several types. The first is live vaccines. They are made from strains of the virus that are safe for humans. With intranasal administration, they contribute to the development of local immunity. Vaccination before the beginning of the epidemic period. Live vaccines vary depending on who they are intended for - children or adults.

People who are older than 7 years are assigned inactivated vaccines. It is a concentrated and purified influenza virus, grown on chick embryos and inactivated by UV radiation and formalin. Inactivated vaccines include flu-like liquid chromatographic, centrifugal and eluate-centrifugal.

Subunit and split vaccines have domestic and imported varieties. These include drugs such as "Grippol" Agrippal "Begrivac" Waxigrip "Influvak" Fluarix. "

Refusal of vaccination

Increasingly, people refuse to vaccinate. This is explained by the fact that often after vaccination against influenza, unwanted reactions of the organism to the material occur. Illiterate introduction, poor quality of the vaccine or non-compliance with the rules after vaccination leads to complications. Another reason for not taking vaccinations is that parents think this is harmful to the health of their child.

Refuse can be from all vaccinations or from some specific. Refusal to vaccinate against influenza should be argued and notified about this decision of employees of the polyclinic.

There are a number of cases when medical workers confirm that it is undesirable to vaccinate against influenza. Contraindications relate primarily to the health of the child, when he suffered a trauma or is ill. But after the state of the baby is normalized, the vaccine still has to be done.

To refuse the vaccination, you must write a special application in two copies (one for yourself, and the second for a school, kindergarten or polyclinic). The application must be registered in the institution's documents journal, it must contain: a deciphered signature, a number, a document number, a seal. It is also worth remembering that the refusal of vaccinations is a decision to take responsibility for the diseases against which vaccination is carried out.

Consequences of refusal of vaccinations

Not always refusing to vaccinate the flu (sample - below) is the right decision by the parents. Preventive vaccinations are protected by law, and their absence makes life difficult for citizens. Thus, they are prohibited from traveling to countries that require specific vaccinations. Citizens may be temporarily denied admission to health or educational institutions, especially if there is a threat of epidemics or infectious diseases. In the absence of the necessary vaccinations, citizens have problems in hiring, where there is a risk of contracting infectious diseases. In other words, non-vaccinated children and adults are not allowed into the collective if there are suspicions of an epidemic.

Effects of flu vaccination

Vaccination against influenza, contraindications to which have already been thoroughly studied, may also negatively affect human health. It is about the occurrence of side effects. Before you do the vaccination, you need to go through the examination and consult with your doctor. The maximum caution should be exercised in the case of vaccination of children, pregnant women and elderly people. Vaccination does not save from all diseases (in this case from influenza) at all, but it at times reduces the possibility of infection. Untimely vaccination can lead to flu. But even then, the disease will be much easier to transfer than by giving up the vaccine.

After vaccination, allergic reactions and chronic illnesses can become aggravated. To avoid this, you need to warn the doctor about their availability. Children should be vaccinated only healthy, because even a slight runny nose during vaccination can turn into a child's insomnia, loss of concentration and reduced immunity. Also, you must follow the rules of care for the vaccination, in order to avoid local problems on the skin. If the organism somehow reacted to previous vaccinations, then the following should be abandoned.
