Acibadem City Clinic health group offers a vaccination package that includes the vaccine itself and an examination by a specialist who specifies the health status of anyone wishing to be vaccinated.
With the beginning of autumn and the cold months, the first flu infections also begin. Regardless of their intensity, viruses should not be underestimated. Even with minimal symptoms and mild flu, patients can be infected and cause infection in the elderly and chronically ill, as well as in people with immune deficiencies. It is mild infections that contribute to the continuous circulation of the virus in society.
Acibadem City Clinic offers its patients an Influvac vaccine suitable for the whole family. The vaccine has 4 ingredients / tetravaccine / against influenza viruses from strain A and strain B – the most common culprits for influenza epidemics.
Vaccination can be done in all of the hospitals in the group:
- Acibadem City Clinic Tokuda Hospital
- Acibadem City Clinic Mladost

Vaccination is suitable for everyone, but is highly recommended for:

The vaccination package also includes an examination by a specialist doctor, who specifies the health status of anyone wishing to be vaccinated.
It is recommended that vaccination is given before the start of the flu season in September and October to allow time for antibodies to form, which takes about 20-25 days. Its main ingredient contains a certain inactive part of the flu virus, not the whole virus – so it can not cause influenza.
The vaccine can be given with appointment in advance by phone * 5544 or by direct visit to the hospital. Discounts in the package price of the vaccination are also provided for more than two people.

The influenza vaccine does not protect against either – infection or COVID-19. The two viruses differ greatly in composition, although they are transmitted in the same way. But it will certainly increase the body’s defenses against other airborne infections.
