Current vaccination


The influenza vaccine is included in the National Immunisation Programme for children under 7 years of age, pregnant women, members of risk groups, people over 65 years of age, social and health care personnel participating in the immediate treatment and care of patients and customers, and people beginning either military service or voluntary military service. 

Additionally, people close to persons at particular risk for severe influenza, people situated in long-term institutional circumstances, e.g. reception centers or prisons are entitled to free of charge vaccinations. Other people can take the vaccine at their own expense or it may be included in one's occupational health care. Influenza viruses change rapidly so the vaccination offers protection only one influenza season at a time.

Up-to-date influenza review (in Finnish)

True or false

Vaccinations are no longer needed?

Smallpox is the only disease that has been globally eradicated. Other diseases, such as measles, are a good example of the importance of maintaining vaccination coverage.

Vaccinations cause autism?

The study that linked the MMR vaccine with autism has been proved false. Vaccine safety is carefully monitored and the benefits of vaccination outweigh the risks.

Do vaccines contain dangerous amounts of toxins?

The quantities are much lower than what we take in from food and beverages and our living environment, in general.

Vaccinations are not necessary for nearby travel?

The most important vaccines for travellers are the same basic immunisations that are recommended to be kept up to date even in Finland. Even those travelling to nearby regions should get the Hepatitis A vaccine and the influenza vaccine. Tick-borne encephalitis is found in regions including the Swedish archipelago.

Vaccines should not be administered to pregnant women?

Many vaccines benefit the health of the mother as well as the child.
