Winter Flu Vaccinations for Unpaid Carers

The flu vaccine is offered every year on the NHS to help protect people at risk of getting seriously ill from flu.  People who receive a Carer’s allowance, or are the main Carer for an older or disabled person who may be at risk if you get sick, will be eligible for a free vaccine as part of the Winter Flu Programme 2021.

Speak to your GP or practice nurse, or alternatively your local pharmacist, to book a vaccination appointment and get the best possible protection.   To find out more about the vaccination programme please visit:
