Flu can be unpleasant, and occasionally it can lead to severe complications. Certain people are more risk and can get the vaccine free on the NHS including:

  • Children over the age of 6 months with a long term health condition
  • Children aged 2 and 3 on August 31st 2018
  • Children in Reception class and Years 1, 2, 3, 4 and 5
  • Those aged 6 months to under 65 years in certain clinical groups
  • Pregnant women
  • Those aged 65 years and over
  • Those in Long -stay residential care homes
  • Carers

People in these groups are more likely to develop potentially serious complications such as pneumonia (lung infection ), so it’s recommended that they have the flu vaccine every year to protect them . If you or someone you care for , are entitled to a free flu jab. contact your local GP today. For more information see www.nhs.co.uk/flu
