Flu is a very contagious infection which can cause serious illness among people aged over 65 years or those of any age with particular medical conditions. Levels of flu infection rise during the winter months.
The best way to protect you against the flu is by having the flu jab every year. The vaccination takes a couple of minutes and is both safe and effective.
Remember because the flu jab is a dead vaccine you can’t catch flu from the flu jab.
