Immunisations and vaccinations

Immunisation is a way of protecting you against serious infectious diseases. Once we have been immunised, our bodies are better able to fight those diseases if we come into contact with them.

Please note: The flu virus and COVID-19 have some of the same symptoms, such as a high temperature and persistent cough, so it's important you have the flu vaccine.

This winter, it's more important than ever to have your flu vaccination to help protect you and those around you from serious illness.

Many people can get a free flu vaccination on the NHS from their GP or a local pharmacy.

If you're not eligible for the NHS flu vaccine but you still want to protect yourself against flu, many pharmacies provide a bookable flu vaccine service.
