The flu virus strikes in winter and it can be far more serious than you think. Flu can lead to serious complications such as bronchitis and pneumonia, and it can be deadly.
That’s why the flu jab is free if you’re aged 65 or over, or if you have a long-term health condition. If you have children or grandchildren aged two, three or four, or in school years one or two, they are eligible for a free flu vaccination.
Self Care Week 2015 takes place from November 16 to 22. It aims to help people take care of themselves, and lets them know what’s available to help them look after their health. The campaign is being run by the Self Care Forum.
