Valvekliinik – personalized care in the centre of Tallinn


At Valvekliiniku we vaccinate for influenza throughout the season. 

Influenza is a viral disease characterized by a sudden onset of the disease, high fever (38 ° C and above), accompanied by cough, headache, sore throat, muscle aches, or difficulty breathing. The best protection is offered if vaccination is completed in October before the season starts (October to December). For healthy people, the vaccination will take effect from 10-14 days after the vaccination shot is done and the effect lasts up to one year. Influenza vaccination can be done starting from the age of 6 months. If children under 9 years old are vaccinated for the first time, they need 2 shots with one month in between.

Vaccination is contraindicated:

  • if you are hypersensitive (allergic) to egg white or any of the other ingredients of this vaccine.
  • during an illness with a high fever.

Vaccination is recommended for everyone, but the following risk groups should definitely consider vaccination: 

  • persons from the age of 65;
  • persons suffering from anaemia, chronic disease of the lungs, heart, kidneys or metabolic system (especially diabetes);
  • children and adolescents with the age between 6 months to 17 years who are receiving long-term treatment with aspirin;
