Fight flu this winter

Did you know that people at high risk from flu are also most at risk from COVID-19?

There’s never been a better time to protect yourself, your friends and family from the double danger of seasonal flu and coronavirus.

The most at-risk people will be invited first to take up this year’s flu vaccination, free of charge. These are:

  • people aged 65 and over
  • pregnant women
  • those with pre-existing medical conditions
  • children aged 2 and 3 years
  • all school year groups up to and including year 7
  • people who are on the shielded patient list and members of their household
  • health and social care workers, including those delivering domiciliary care to patients and service users.

Once the vaccination of the most ‘at-risk’ groups is well underway, health services will confirm when best to invite people aged 50 to 64 to secure their flu vaccination.

Get your flu vaccination at your GP surgery, a local pharmacy, your workplace, school or midwifery service. Keep Greenwich Safe.
