Flu jab

If you have a long term health condition such as asthma or diabetes, make sure you don’t miss out on the flu jab. Speak to your GP surgery about clinic times each autumn. The flu jab is also available in many local pharmacies for free for people with certain long-term conditions or for a small fee otherwise.
