Flu jabs for carers

The seasonal flu vaccine is the best way to protect yourself and the person you care for from flu, and will prevent you being stopped from being able to care.

If you are caring for someone you may be concerned about how being ill will affect you as a carer and the person you care for.

If you are the main carer for an elderly or disabled person who may be put at risk if you fall ill, and/or if you are in receipt of Carer’s Allowance, you should be offered a free flu jab, according to government policy.

Other categories of people are also eligible for a free flu jab, including those aged 65+, those who are pregnant, and those with certain health conditions.

Further information on flu jabs in England can be seen on the NHS website.
