Seasonal influenza vaccinations


Flu is a contagious respiratory disease. Anyone can get the flu and, in certain individuals, it may lead to serious complications. Vaccination is the single best way to protect against influenza.

Research indicates that getting vaccinated against the flu every year protects against the three influenza viruses that will cause the most illness in the current season.

As we are now approaching the time of year when seasonal flu, cases start to appear, we would like to take this opportunity to remind you to help protect yourself, your family, friends and colleagues by visiting your GP to have your annual flu vaccination.

Top healthcare leaders at Public Health England (PHE), Department of Health (DH) and NHS England have created letters specific to different healthcare staff groups around why it is so important to get vaccinated. To view the letter relevant to you, click on the staff group below:
