Flu Vaccination by injection, commonly known as the ‘Flu Jab’ is available every year on the NHS to protect adults and some children at risk of flu and its complications.
Flu, although not pleasant, will clear up within a week or so provided you are otherwise in good health. However, flu can be more severe in certain people such as:
• The over 65’s
• Pregnant women
• Adults and children with long-term heart or respiratory disease or another health condition
• Adults and children with weakened immune systems
