Watch out for the gripe (flu) now Winter is approaching. During october you can buy your vaccination at chemists, priced between €7 and €8.50, depending on the brand. It was recommended for anyone over 65, especially if they live in an institution where the risk of cross infection is much greater, but also people with lung and breathing problems, or with heart, liver, or kidney weaknesses, or who suffer with diabetes, or anything that lowers the natural resistance of the body. Apparently, if you have an allergy to eggs you should avoid the vaccination.
