People aged 50+

Flu can cause serious long-term complications for people aged 50 years and over.

It’s easy for us to pass the virus on without knowing. Even if we’re healthy, we can still get flu and spread it to the people we care for. Help protect yourself and others with the flu vaccine.

The free flu vaccine is the very best protection for you, and your loved ones, from the harms of flu.

As well as having your flu vaccine, people aged 65+ may be eligible for the pneumococcal and shingles vaccines. All three vaccines can be given at the same time.
