Vaccination encouraged before flu season gets into full swing

Public Health experts are urging those eligible to get their flu vaccine before the worst of the winter flu season begins. To maximize their protection against flu, people need to get vaccinated a few weeks before the flu season starts – usually it begins around early December. Vaccination will help to protect them from getting seriously ill before Christmas and the New Year when flu cases are expected to peak.  

Over half a million people have already been vaccinated for flu in Wales so far this year. People who are eligible should come forward for their winter vaccines as soon as possible.
