Recieving a flu vaccine can help protect adults and children at risk of flu and its complications.
Flu can be more severe in certain people, such as:
- anyone aged 65 and over
- pregnant women
- children and adults with an underlying health condition (such as long-term heart or respiratory disease)
- children and adults with weakened immune systems
Anyone in these risk groups is more likely to develop potentially serious complications of flu, so it's recommended that they have a flu vaccine every year to help protect them
