Winter Flu Vaccinations

Please see the attached document from the NHS on who needs the flu vaccine and why. It should answer any queries you have about it’s eligibility and the importance of having the shot (particularly if you are over 65 or a pregnant woman). As most of you will be aware, so that our health services can match the demand for the flu vaccination to the supplies of the vaccine, the vaccination is being rolled out in phases so that those who are the most at risk can be vaccinated first.
