In brief: Flu shot

If you will be travelling to europe during a season when you expect influenza to be active, it is advisable to get the flu shot at least 2 - 3 weeks before your flight to give your body enough time to increase your antibody levels against the flu.
This applies to everybody from age 9 years.
