What is flu and why get vaccinated?
Flu (Influenza) is a highly infectious disease. For most healthy people, a bad case of flu is worse than a heavy cold and often requires a few days in bed. However, for those with an underlying health condition, there is a risk of causing severe illness and developing serious complications from flu.
Getting your flu vaccination will significantly reduce your risk of getting flu, keeping your immune system at its strongest and relieving potential strain on the NHS.
