Flu vaccinations

A record 30 million people are being offered the free flu vaccination this year. It is given to people who:

  • are 65 and over (including those who’ll be 65 by 31 March 2021)
  • have certain health conditions
  • are pregnant
  • are in a long-stay residential care
  • receive a carer’s allowance, or are the main carer for an older or disabled person who may be at risk if you get sick
  • live with someone who’s at high risk from coronavirus (on the NHS shielded patient list)
  • frontline health or social care workers

It’s more important than ever for people to get their vaccination, to help protect the nation from the double threat of flu and COVID-19 this winter. Further information is available at: nhs.uk/conditions/vaccinations/flu-influenza-vaccine/.
