The NHS England Winter campaign is underway. A big part of this is about increasing uptake of the flu vaccination, particularly amongst ‘at risk’ groups. People with learning disabilities are identified as ‘at risk’, which entitles them to a free flu vaccination. Their carers are also entitled to a free flu jab.
If you support people with learning disabilities and/or their carers, please can you remind them that they can have a free flu jab.
NHS England has produced a short video which you may find useful to show to your members.
