Why flu vaccination is important for carers
Carers are people who are in receipt of a carer’s allowance, or those who are the main carer of an older or disabled person whose welfare may be at risk if their carer falls ill.
The flu jab is the best way to protect yourself and the person you care for from flu.
The flu can be far more serious for the person you care for than you think. It can lead to serious complications such as bronchitis and pneumonia, and could even land them in hospital.
Don’t put it off – contact your GP or pharmacist to get the flu jab now. It’s free because you need it.
