The flu virus is a highly infectious virus which can easily spread from person to person, even between those not showing symptoms. 

The flu vaccine is the best protection for you and those around you. It's available for FREE to those most at risk. 

People somethings think a bad cold is flu, but having flu can often be much worse then a cold and you may need to stay in bed for a few days. Some people are more susceptible to the effects of flu. For them, it can increase the risk of developing more serious illness such as bronchitis and pneumonia, or even make existing conditions worse. In the worst cases, flu can result in a stay in hospital, or even death. 

You can get your flu vaccination from your local pharmacist or your GP in Sutton.
