Boost your immunity

Flu and COVID-19 can be life-threatening and spread more easily in winter when we are crowded together inside.

Most adults and children can get a free flu vaccine, COVID-19 booster or both. The best way to protect ourselves from these viruses is to get vaccinated.

Don't delay - book your COVID-19 and flu vaccinations online today, or speak to your GP or a pharmacist.
