Protect yourself and those around you!
Flu can be very serious. Like COVID-19, it is caused by a virus and it can lead to illnesses such as bronchitis and pneumonia, which may need treatment in hospital.
There are outbreaks of flu most winters, especially in hospitals and care homes.
In a normal winter, thousands of people will die from flu-related illnesses in the UK.
This winter we may see COVID-19 and flu both circulating at the same time, so it’s very important to get protected.
Having a flu vaccine every year is one of the best ways to protect against flu.
Flu vaccines are quick and very safe, and could prevent weeks of serious illness.
Flu vaccines are given in a COVID-19 safe environment.
