Beat Flu, get a flu vaccination

Flu vaccination is available every year on the National Health Service to help protect children and adults   at risk of flu and its complications

Flu can be unpleasant, but if you're healthy, it'll usually clear up on its own within a week.

Flu can be severe in  certain people, such as:

. Anyone over the age of 65

. Pregnant women

. Children and adults with an underlying health condition

(such as long-term heart or respiratory disease)

. Children and adults with weakened immune systems

Anyone in these risk groups are more likely to develop potentially serious complications such as pneumonia (a lung infection), so it's recommended that they have a flu vaccine every year to help protect them.


Carers who look after vulnerable adults, health front line workers, and children 2-10 years old are also eligible for a free flu vaccine.


To protect yourself against flu, all you need to do is to go to your local GP or hospital for an appointment where a qualified nurse will give you your flu jab and it will only take a couple of minutes. If you are unable to go unaccompanied you can take a carer or a relative with you
