At-risk patients urged to get free flu jabs
1:00pm Monday 21st January 2013 in News
PEOPLE across Tendring entitled to a free flu jab have been told it is not too late - especially the under-16s.
The over-65s, at-risk groups and pregnant women are entitled to free flu vaccinations.
The vaccine changes every year to fight the latest strains of flu, so even patients who had a jab last winter need another one this year.
The jab does not contain the live virus so it cannot give people flu.
