If you are eligible for a free flu vaccine, you are encouraged to take up the offer to protect yourself and others and help reduce pressure on the NHS.

The flu vaccine is the best protection we have against the flu, which is unpleasant and can trigger severe illness in those who are most vulnerable.

Due to high demand, there may be some delay getting a vaccination appointment, but there will be enough vaccine for everyone who is eligible. Your GP surgery or pharmacy will tell you when more appointments are available.

All patients with a learning disability can receive a free flu vaccine, and this easy read leaflet provides information on how to get a vaccination.
