Seasonal Flu Vaccination
Getting a flu vaccine is more important than ever due to the likelihood that flu and Covid-19 will both be in circulation. You will be contacted by your GP and/or workplace if you are eligible for a flu vaccine during the 2023/24 winter season.
GPs and pharmacies still have appropriate infection control practices in place to make it safer for vulnerable people to come and get vaccinated.
