With flu season approaching, it’s time to think about getting a flu vaccine to protect yourself and others. Please note that CERN will go back to its pre-COVID practice of vaccinating at the CERN infirmary. The infirmary will vaccinate anyone working on the CERN site (MPE, MPA, temporary workers and contractors) provided that the person brings their own vaccine and completes the relevant medical questionnaire at the infirmary confirming there are no contraindications to vaccination. Both conditions have to be met for the vaccine to be administered. A medical prescription will be provided after vaccination to allow the patient to claim back the cost with their health insurance provider.
CERN retirees and family members can obtain the flu vaccine in France or Switzerland from their general practitioner or pharmacy. The vaccine is also reimbursed under the CHIS according to its own rules.
The infirmary is open for vaccination from Monday to Friday from 8 a.m. to 12.30 p.m. and from 2 p.m. to 4.30 p.m.
