Do you have, or care for someone, with a learning disability? They, and you, are entitled to a free flu vaccine.


Anyone can catch flu. Flu is caused by a bug called a virus. Flu can make you, your loved one or the person you care for feel ill. If someone is very ill will the flu they might even have to go to hospital.

Having the flu jab can help stop you from catching the flu and passing it onto other people. The jab is free to people with a learning disability and their carers.

The flu jab is a quick and easy injection. After the jab you may feel a bit hot, have a sore arm and ache a bit, but you would feel a lot worse if you caught the flu.

Contact your doctor today to get the jab.
