Do you have, or care for someone with, a learning disability?

They, and you, are entitled to a FREE flu vaccine.

Anyone can catch flu. Flu can make you, your loved one, or the person you care for feel ill. If someone is very ill with the flu they might even have to go to hospital.

Having the flu jab can help stop you from catching the flu and passing it onto other people. The jab is free for people with a learning disability and their carers. The flu jab is an injection in your arm. Don’t let this stop you – it is quick and easy, and the doctor, nurse or pharmacist will look after you.

After the jab you may feel a bit hot, have a sore arm and ache a bit, but you would feel a lot worse if you caught the flu.

If you are terrified of needles, ask your doctor about the nasal vaccine.

Contact your doctor or local pharmacy today to get the free flu jab.
