Munich (dpa / lby) - In order to prepare for the coming flu season, the Free State is getting 100,000 additional vaccine doses. Experts assumed that a corona and influenza wave could coincide in autumn and winter, said Bavaria's Health Minister Klaus Holetschek (CSU) on Sunday in Munich. "We have to expect a complex infection process."
Holetschek emphasized that the flu vaccination can be administered at the same doctor's visit as a booster vaccination against Corona. The chronically ill, pregnant women and those over 60 should be vaccinated against the flu.
However, Bavaria recommends everyone to be vaccinated against influenza. "The more people get vaccinated against the flu, the better - because vaccination is particularly important this year," said Holetschek. You should seek advice on this from your doctor.
