Does everyone need a flu jab?

No, just people who are at particular risk of problems if they catch flu. You need a flu jab if:

  • you’re aged 65 or over
  • you’re pregnant
  • you have a serious medical condition
  • you live in a residential or nursing home
  • you’re the main carer for an elderly or disabled person whose welfare may be at risk if you fall ill
  • your child is in an at-risk group and is aged six months to two years
