Flu is an unpredictable virus that can cause mild or unpleasant illness in most people. It can cause severe illness and even death among vulnerable groups including older people, pregnant women and people with an underlying health condition. Certain people are more likely to develop potentially serious complications of flu, such as bronchitis and pneumonia and are advised to have a flu jab each year. The injected flu vaccine is offered free of charge on the NHS to those at risk to ensure they are protected against catching flu and developing serious complications. You are eligible to receive a free flu jab if you:
