Flu vaccination clinics across Brighton and Hove are underway this autumn and the NHS is encouraging anyone who is eligible for a free flu vaccination to book an appointment with their GP or pharmacist, as soon as they receive an invitation.
The flu has the potential to cause severe illness and even death in vulnerable people and with the Covid-19 pandemic, it’s more important this year than ever to ensure you are protected.
For the first time, children in school Year 7, and household contacts and carers of those on the NHS Shielded Patient List, are all eligible for the free vaccination. These groups are in addition to people aged over 65, those under 65 with long-term health conditions, pregnant women, children aged 2 and 3 and children in primary school.
