Carers are being offered the free flu jab to protect them from catching the virus and stop its spread to those they care for, who could become seriously ill and even die from catching the flu.
The NHS is offering those who are the main carer for another person, or who receive the Carers’ Allowance, the free flu jab to protect them from becoming too ill to provide care or passing on the virus.
Flu can easily spread to those who are vulnerable, even without symptoms showing. The free flu vaccine is the very best way to stop carers from passing on the virus to those receiving care – who are at most risk from becoming seriously ill if the catch the flu.
This year with both the flu virus and COVID-19 circulating flu immunisation is more important than ever to reduce infections, protect each other and protect the NHS.
