This year it had been planned to deliver flu vaccines earlier than previous seasons. Annually, Ireland starts delivering flu vaccine earlier than other EU jurisdictions and it is expected that this will also happen this year as Ireland will receive doses from the first released batches.
It is anticipated that the vaccine will be available at a similar time as previous seasons.
We will update our dedicated website www.hse.ie/flu as information becomes available.
More information about the flu vaccine for children will also be made available from www.hse.ie/flu in the coming weeks.
