Do Europeans Get Flu Shots?

Jump to last reply

First of all let me say why I am posting this on the Europe Forum - because I want to know how Europeans feel about flu shots and if they routinely are advised to get them like we are - I think most Fodorpeans only read the Europe Forum and not the Lounge where I would normally have posted this!

So Europeans - do you routinely get the flu vaccination and do your health authorities routinely advise them?

I say this because some French friends said they never got flu shots not were they recommended - now these French folks kind of live in caves so I am not sure they are in the know - but since the French, arguably, have the world's finest health care system and one of the longest life spans I particular wish to know about France.

This comes up in a thread I started in the Lounge asking about the efficdacy of flu shots and if they were effective - studies I have seen present conflicting info but if they are thought to be effective I think Europeans would get them just as much as we do?

Thanks for any responses!
