Vaccinations

Flu & Covid-19

THE FLU VACCINE

The seasonal flu vaccine (flu jab) protects against strains of flu virus. These strains are recommended by the World Health Organization (WHO) as the strains most likely to be circulating this season.

The vaccine is available every year to adults and children at risk of flu and its complications.

You need to get a new vaccine every Autumn. This is because the strains of the flu virus change. This is why it is called seasonal flu. But people commonly call it flu.

You should get your flu vaccine during the Autumn, to be covered for flu season.

WHO SHOULD GET FLU VACCINE

Some people are more at risk of getting complications if they catch flu.
