Public Health Englang urges those at highest risk of flu to get vaccinated
'Stay Well This Winter' campaign launches to urge people who are most vulnerable to flu to get their free vaccination.
People who are the most vulnerable to flu are being urged to get their free vaccination from today (12 October 2017), ahead of the winter period when the virus is most common.
This year, Public Health England (PHE) are aiming to vaccinate more people than ever – around 13 million people in total. Children in school year 4 will be offered the vaccine for the first time and children over age 4 in reception year can get their vaccine in school.
The national drive marks the start of 'Stay Well This Winter', an initiative from PHE and NHS England to help the most vulnerable people prepare for winter and avoid having to visit hospital due to common winter illnesses.
