Flu shots?

Please do not respond by telling me to take Vitamin D instead because vaccines are evil and some type of government scam, or simply money-making business, etc., etc. Save that for your own thread please if you want to discuss it.

My question is how are flu shots administered here in Switzerland? In the States, they were free at my HMO's buildings and they were also readily available to anyone in the grocery stores for a small fee. During the next few weeks is the time we would always get them.

Is it similar here or do I need to make a special appointment with my doctor? Can anyone receive them or are they only covered for high-risk patients? Any other info about how and when to get them would be appreciated.
