Why should I have a flu vaccination?
Flu vaccines save lives – they are safe and effective ways of protecting people at risk of flu and its complications. While flu is unpleasant for most people, it can be dangerous and even life threatening for some people, particularly those with certain health conditions.
The best time to have a flu vaccine is in the autumn before flu starts spreading.
