The flu virus kills 11,000 people and hospitalises tens of thousands more in England in an average year, and 2020 is anything but an average year.
That’s why we are urging everyone who is eligible to take up the free flu vaccine this winter.
The flu virus spreads from person to person, even amongst those not showing any symptoms. Flu can cause severe complications, particularly for high risk groups. This is why we’re urging everyone to protect themselfs and others from the flu virus.
Whilst the threat may be invisible, the protection is clear. Help protect yourself and others with the flu vaccine.
