If you are in receipt of a carer’s allowance or are the main carer of an older or disabled person you are eligible for the free flu jab.
Flu can easily spread to those who are most vulnerable, even if you are not showing symptoms, and so it is really important you get the flu jab to protect yourself and the person you care for.
The free flu vaccine is the very best protection from flu; not just for those who are most at risk from flu but also the people they rely upon to care for them.
Flu can even make people who are usually healthy very unwell which would mean you wouldn’t be able to look after the person you care for.
Where to get vaccinated
Ask your GP or pharmacist if you’re eligible for a free flu vaccination.
