At this time of year it is really important that those people in vulnerable groups receive their seasonal Flu vaccine in order to keep themselves protected against the serious complications of flu.To help make it even easier to access, you can now have the Flu vaccination at many local pharmacies as well as at your local GP practice. And this year, children in year 7 can also have the vaccination at school, and it’s even done without needles!
The Flu Vaccine is recommended for anyone over the age of 65, pregnant, those with long term medical conditions, those in nursing or residential care homes and carers of the elderly or disabled. Also this year the vaccine is also being offered, needle-free, to 2 & 3 year olds.
