There’s a lot of fake news about flu and the flu vaccine. So we want to give you the facts. Flu can be life threatening and every year, thousands of people are hospitalised in Scotland. Children and those with health conditions like diabetes, heart or breathing problems are especially at risk – even if they seem fit and well. The vaccine doesn’t give you flu- in fact, it’s the safest, most effective way to help protect yourself. So contact your GP practice now.
