Flu Vaccinations

Who should have it and why?

The flu injection is completely safe and cannot give you flu.

Over 65?

Flu can be more severe and cause complications in the over 65s.

Weakened immune system?

Flu can be fatal if you are already suffering from a weakened immune system.

Health Condition?

Flu can be more serious if you have asthma, diabetes or a heart, chest, liver or kidney problem.

Pregnant?

The flu injection will not harm your baby. In fact it protects both of you at this important time.

Are you a carer?

You are entitled to a free flu injection if you receive a Carer’s Allowance, or are the main carer of a person whose welfare may be at risk if you fall ill.
