About the vaccines

The vaccines are the best protection from flu and COVID-19.

As protection reduces over time, the winter vaccines help to build up immunity to flu and COVID-19 viruses that may be circulating this year. Having the vaccines can make symptoms milder if someone does get flu or COVID-19. 

All medicines, including vaccines, are tested for safety and effectiveness before they’re allowed to be used. Their safety continues to be checked while in use.

Several vaccines are available and in use. The vaccines offered will be the most suitable ones for an individual’s condition or age.
