New record for flu vaccinations: almost every third person got a jab

The Danish public has clearly got used to standing in line for a jab.

During this flu season, 1.7 million people were vaccinated against influenza. This is almost every third person in Denmark.

According to the General Practitioners Organization (PLO), it is the highest admission in history.

The total number is 800,000 more than the number of vaccinated in the 2019-2020 season – just before the pandemic.

The effect of the pandemic
I think that after two years with the corona epidemic, the population has found out that it is really smart to be vaccinated against infectious diseases, ”says PLO chairman Jørgen Skadborg according to DR.

The majority of those vaccinated are people at risk: people over 65, pregnant and chronically ill.

The risk group was expanded last fall to reduce the spread of influenza among those at risk of getting coronavirus.

It now also includes children aged 2-6 years, caregivers and health professionals.
