Flu jabs - make sure you get yours

THE NHS in Cumbria is urging people of all ages who have a learning disability to get a flu jab.

Posted Monday, 2nd November 2020

It is vitally important that people with a learning disability receive a flu vaccination. The NHS in north Cumbria has issued a series of short films on all aspects of flu jabs including why people should have them, and how you can help other people from catching the flu.
