Over 65s urged to get flu vaccine

The NHS is urging the over 65s to take advantage of the NHS’s biggest ever flu vaccination programme.

Older people across the country are being offered the most effective vaccine in the world as part of the programme which is providing a record 8.5m doses free of charge.

All vaccines have now been delivered to those surgeries and pharmacists who placed an order on time and the NHS is reassuring the public that there is sufficient supply of the vaccine in stock for everyone to get protected ahead of winter.
