NHS Flu vaccinations for residents in Warwickshire are now available in GP surgeries, and soon to be available from pharmacies too.

One in three people in the county are entitled to a free flu vaccination including everyone aged 65 or over.

However only about half of adults in Warwickshire who are identified as clinically at risk choose to get a jab, and even fewer children.

Pregnant women at all stages of pregnancy are entitled to the vaccine yet less than 50 per cent of women who were pregnant last winter had the jab.
