aThe flu vac­ci­na­tion is of­fered to ev­ery­one with an in­creased risk of catch­ing the virus or hav­ing com­pli­ca­tions from it. This in­cludes ev­ery­one over the age of 65, even if they are fit and well! Chil­dren from the age of two years old to year five in school (age nine or 10) are also of­fered a vac­cine, as well as preg­nant women and all chil­dren and adults with a longterm med­i­cal con­di­tion, such as asthma or di­a­betes. The con­stituents of the flu jab change each year to try to best fight the chang­ing flu viruses and as such you need a new vac­cine ev­ery year to make sure you’re pro­tected and keep you in your fit and healthy state.
