The flu vaccine is a safe and effective vaccine, and gives the best protection against flu. It’s offered every year for free by the NHS to help protect people at risk of flu and its complications. It will also help reduce the risk of you spreading flu to others. Adults who are eligible will be invited for their annual flu vaccine by letter, usually between October and March.
Drop-in clinics are also available throughout the flu season for those who qualify for the free vaccine, details of which are usually made available on our webpages and social media channels.
