Staying well through winter: Get winter strong

Being vaccinated against flu and COVID-19 means protecting yourself so you can be there for your family, friends, and those you care for. The NHS is inviting more vulnerable groups to have free flu vaccines and COVID-19 boosters, so look out for your invite.

Get vaccinated, get winter strong

Some adults and children will be eligible for a free NHS flu vaccine, a seasonal COVID-19, or both. The NHS is offering these to those who are most vulnerable.  To see if you are eligible check who can get a free flu vaccine and see our COVID-19 advice pages for information around who can get a COVID-19 vaccine. It is safe to have both jabs at the same time. It’s the most effective way to boost our natural immunity and protect ourselves from these viruses.
