GET THE FLU JAB

NORTHAMPTONSHIRE COUNTY COUNCIL

 

Influenza is a virus causing a lung or respiratory infection. While for most people it is only an unpleasant illness that should pass in about a week, it can cause serious complications, particularly in young children and older adults.  

Getting a flu vaccination is the most effective way to stop you catching flu and passing it on to others. 

Who can get a free flu jab?

You can get the flu jab for free if you are:

  • Pregnant – at any stage of pregnancy
  • Aged 2-3 years  - the vaccination is delivered via a nasal spray rather than an injection
  • Aged 65 years +
  • Aged 6 months + and have:

   Chronic respiratory disease

   Chronic heart disease

   Chronic kidney disease

   Chronic liver disease

   Chronic neurological disease

   Diabetes

   Immunosuppression 

                

 Protect yourself

Speak to your GP or Pharmacy to arrange to get vaccinated.
