Dont wait, act now!
Flu is a highly infectious and very common viral illness that is spread by coughs and sneezes, and getting a flu jab is the single best way to protect yourself, your family and friends from flu.
You can catch flu (Influenza) all year round, but it is particularly prevalent during the winter months. Flu is not the same as a cold, it is caused by a different group of viruses and the symptoms of flu tend to be more severe and may last longer.
