Flu Season 2021

Seasonal Flu Vaccination

The flu vaccine is a safe and effective vaccine and is offered every year to help protect people at risk of getting seriously ill from flu. The best time to have the flu vaccine is in the autumn or early winter before flu starts spreading. 

We are encouraging eligible groups to have their free flu vaccination this winter. This includes pregnant women, over 50 years, children aged up to 15 years old, adults with underlying health conditions, carers and close contacts of immunocompromised individuals. You can find further details on eligibility to receive the flu vaccination here: https://www.nhs.uk/conditions/vaccinations/flu-influenza-vaccine/
