Residents urged to get flu jab this winter

PEOPLE are being urged not to put their lives at risk as temperatures start to drop.

One in three in the county are eligible for the free flu jab, yet last year’s take up was poor – with one in four not having the vaccine.

And with flu putting a strain on health and care services, council leaders are urging people to get the jab.

Everyone aged 65 or over and those with conditions such as asthma and diabetes are entitled for the free jab, which is available from GPs and pharmacies.




This year will also see all children in Warwickshire aged two, three and four offered free flu nasal sprays, plus all children in school years one, two and three will get the vaccine.
