NHS Flu Vaccinations

Flu vaccination is important because:

More people are likely to get flu this winter as fewer people will have built up natural immunity to it during the COVID-19 pandemic if you get flu and COVID-19 at the same time, research shows you're more likely to be seriously ill getting vaccinated against flu and COVID-19 will provide protection for you and those around you for both these serious illnesses

If you've had COVID-19, it's safe to have the flu vaccine. It will still be effective at helping to prevent flu.
