You can get your flu jab now from your GP or many local pharmacies. Flu jabs are free for people over 65, if you have certain long-term health conditions or are a carer. As you get older, there is a higher chance flu may develop into pneumonia. Flu viruses change each year, so it’s important to have your jab annually, and as early as possible. If you are over 65, ask your GP about the pneumo jab too. This one-off vaccination helps protect you against pneumonia, meningitis and septicaemia.
