Flu vaccine in Geneva

Hello,
I would like to get a flu shot in Geneva but I have relocated recently from the US and I don't know where to go.
Is it possible to get it at pharmacies or would I need to see a doctor? Also, is there a list of doctors that I could maybe check, since I don't have a personal doctor here?


Thank you!
Marcello

Thank you!


I don't speak French, so I am not sure if any documents are required. Did they ask for anything in Bern?

No special documents but I had to fill out a form. It asked if I had any egg allergies or was taking any medication or something like that. Was basically just a few questions

I was at the Permanance in Plainpalais the other day. They had a sign up saying that the flu jabs were now available. You don't need an appointment.

I presume other Permanances around town do the same thing. Look for one near your home. I think the doctor i saw speaks English. He was singing a song in English while i was waiting!!
