Why is flu so serious?

Many people think flu is just a bad cold, but it isn't - flu can develop into more serious illnesses, such as bronchitis and pneumonia, which could lead to a stay in hospital or even death in some cases.

The nuber of deahs from flu varies each year - in the UK it can be as high as 10,000 but has reached 20,000 in a flu epidemic year.


Although many people say they rarely get flu, each year around 15-20% of people in the UK are infected.

Flu spreads easily - flu viruses can survive as particles in the air, or on surfaces such as door handles for several hours. So one person can infect many others.

We offer private flu vaccinations for those that aren't eligible for a free NHS vaccine.

The cost of the vaccine is £12.50
