Flu and the flu vaccine - Live Well - NHS Choices

Flu and the flu vaccine - Live Well - NHS Choices | Information about Diabetes for Carers | Scoop.it
Find out about flu, including information on symptoms, the seasonal flu jab and who is at risk.
Emma Winterman's insight:

People over the age of 65, pregnant or living with chronic long term conditions are much more vulnerable to the effects of Flu and are more likely to develop more serious symptoms. Flu is caused by a virus and so antibiotics cannot be used to treat it. However the Flu jab can help to prevent you catching the flu. This web page contains more information about how you can get a flu jab.
