Information on flu vaccines to help keep you and your family well this winter

Having a flu vaccine if you are eligible and able to have it, is an important way to help protect yourself, your family and those you have contact with from flu infection. It is expected there will be high levels of flu germs circulating this year so, it is particularly important to take up the offer of flu vaccines. This will help reduce the risk of illness within your family.

GP’s will again be inviting all 2 and 3 year old children to have a flu vaccination. This vaccination, like all other routine childhood vaccinations is free, so you do not need to pay.
