Age Cymru would like to clarify that the flu jab provides essential protection from seasonal flu each year, but that it does not protect against pneumonia. However, protecting yourself from flu is a key action to take each year, as in severe cases flu can be life threatening, and pneumonia may be a complication of a severe bout of flu. It is important to note that the chances of developing pneumonia in the elderly is greatly enhanced if you get flu but not all older people with flu will get pneumonia.  
The tips provided in this short film are really helpful and practical, and will support older people to Keep Well, Keep Warm and Keep Safe throughout the winter months.
