Flu Vaccination

Shielding? Get your free flu vaccination

Hopefully you will have been called for your flu vaccination this year.

If you usually get your vaccination at your GP surgery the arrangements may have been different this year, but if you haven’t yet been contacted please check their social media or give them a call. You can also have your jab at your local pharmacy.

Deliveries of the vaccine are still underway, so if you haven’t been able to get one please be patient if you have to wait.

The national guidance says if you are the main carer for an elderly or disabled person, who may be put at risk if you became ill, you should be offered a free flu vaccination. You should also be offered one if you are receiving Carer’s Allowance. You can read more information here:
