Get your flue jab

Jenny Chapman MP is encouraging Darlington residents who are eligible to receive free flu jabs to be vaccinated this winter.

Those eligible entitled to annual flu vaccinations are:

  • anyone over the age of 65 
  • pregnant women
  • children and adults with an underlying health condition
  • children and adults with weakened immune systems

 

For the first time, healthy young children will also be offered an annual nasal spray to prevent against flu.

The annual drive is to encourage better protection and prevention from the flu virus, which kills a number of people every year, and to urge those vaccinated in previous years to continue receiving the jab, as a new vaccine is developed every year.

Everyone eligible to receive a free NHS flu vaccine will be contacted in the next few weeks. To book an appointment, contact your local GP or pharmacist.
