Our flu vaccine toolkit has all the facts and figures about the flu virus, the flu vaccine, and will give you all the resources to run a flu vaccine information session yourself.
This winter will see the largest ever NHS flu vaccine campaign in the context of Covid-19. It is vital to ensure older Londoners are informed and supported to access flu vaccine during this flu season.
Age UK London has launched the "Now More Than Ever" campaign, a focused promotion of the flu vaccine across London.The campaign will place additional focus on targeting the boroughs in North and Northwest London - as vaccine uptake is especially low - as well as BAMER older Londoners.
New research from Public Health England (PHE) suggests the risk of death more than doubled for people who tested positive for both flu and Covid-19, compared to those with Covid-19 alone. We are calling on all older Londoners who haven’t had their flu jab to visit their GP or pharmacist as soon as possible to ensure they’re protected from the flu virus.
