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:
