Vaccination against seasonal flu

The Medical Service once again recommends you to get your annual flu vaccination for the year.


Vaccination is the most effective way of avoiding the illness and any serious consequences and protecting those around you. The flu can have especially serious consequences for people with chronic conditions (diabetes, cardio-vascular disease, etc.), pregnant women, infants, and people over 65 years of age.

Remember, anyone working on the CERN site who wishes to be vaccinated against seasonal flu should go to the Infirmary (Building 57, ground floor) with their vaccine.

The Medical Service will issue a prescription on the day of the vaccination for the purposes of reimbursement by UNIQA.

NB: The Medical Service cannot provide this vaccination service for family members or retired members of the personnel.
