Seasonal Flu Vaccinations: Stay Flu Safe
People whose health is a greatest risk from flu are being urged to protect thmselves and their families against it this winter.
Those at increased risk of severe illness if they catch flu include people with long term conditions such as diabetes, kidney and liver disease and those with disorders like multiple sclerosis.
Pregnant women should also have the flu vaccination to protect themselves and their unborn child, and people over the age of 65 should also have the jab.
GPs will be holding flu vaccination clinics from 1st October onwards - patients in the target group should contact their GP practice to find details of their seasonal flu vaccination programme. Further information is available in the Flu Safe leaflet here.
