That familiar chill in the air acts as a reminder to all carers that it is time, once again, to get your FREE flu jab.
While flu causes mild illness in most people, some people can develop potentially serious complications such as bronchitis and pneumonia. The flu vaccine helps protect family, friends and the people you care for who may be vulnerable.
This winter, with COVID-19 in circulation, it’s more important than ever that you get vaccinated to protect you, and the person you care for, from flu.
Many more people are eligible this year as the programme has been expanded.
