Hi Trevor the Pharmacys stopped administering them last year so we do it ourselves just take a cool box to put them in till you get home should be okay.The cost was Euro 27.34 for two about the same as last year.

What happens if anaphylaxis (hypersensitivity (to a protein or drug) resulting from prior contact with a substance) occurs as a result of the injections?

Trev, if you are registered with Dr Avram in the village and signed up with Gesy he will administer it on a Tuesday of Thursday.

Thanks for that info, as it will probably be of help to someone in the group from the Polemi area.
But I am registered with a Doctor in Paphos..

Long way to go to see a doctor, Dr Avram is very thorough, he arranged Andree’s foot surgery the same week.

It is a long way, but she is available every day between 9 and 4 .. We have been going to her for a good few years, well before Gesy stated up, so we didn't see the need to change.

Just wondering if the flu jab in Cyprus the same as in the UK or is it a different formulation?
