Don't forget to get your flu jab

 It is even more important than usual that we all get our flu jabs this year. Free for everyone over 50 (rather than the usual 60) and vulnerable groups. 

Some employers (including mine) have organised free flu jabs for all employees under 50 as well.

GP practices here in North Cumbria have started the annual flu vaccination programme. It is a bigger job than usual as they have to maintain social distancing to keep everyone safe.

But the last thing we can afford this winter is the combination of another wave of the Coronavirus combined with the usual winter flu outbreak. 

Both to protect yourself and your family - not least because people whose system is weakened by flu might well be more vulnerable to COVID-19 - and to protect the NHS so they can protect you, get your flu jab.
