Don't Forget to Get Your Flu Jab!

Flu is an unpredictable virus that can cause mild or unpleasant illness in most people. It can cause severe illness and even death among vulnerable groups including older people, pregnant women and people with an underlying health condition. 

You are eligible to receive a free flu jab if you: are 65 years of age or over; are pregnant; have certain medical condition; are living in a long-stay residential care home or other long-stay care facility; or receive a carer's allowance, or you are the main carer for an elderly or disabled person whose welfare may be at risk if you fall ill.
