Flu Vaccine – Public Health England Message

The flu virus kills thousands on an average year. The vaccine is the best protection. Help us help you protect against flu. Flu is a serious condition that kills thousands and hospitalizes thousands more in England each year.

The flu vaccination is the best protection for you and those around you which is why it is offered for free for those most at risk. Adults at high risk from flu are also most at risk from COVID-19 and the free vaccine is more important than ever, to help protect the nation from a double threat this winter.

That’s why this year, the free flu vaccine is being offered to a record number of 30 million people to help protect as many as possible from flu and ease pressure on the NHS and urgent care services. Ask your pharmacist or GP if you’re eligible for a free flu vaccine. If your child is at school and aged 4-11 years old, make sure you sign and return the consent form.
