Staying well in winter
Get a flu vaccine
Flu will often get better on its own, but it can make some people seriously ill. It's important to get the flu vaccine if you're advised to.
The flu vaccine is a safe and effective vaccine. It's offered every year on the NHS to help protect people at risk of flu and its complications.
The best time to have the flu vaccine is in the autumn before flu starts spreading.
