Not everyone needs the flu vaccine and that’s why only those listed above can get the jab for free.
You can pay privately to get the flu jab, with costs ranging from between £8 and £13.99.
There are some popes that should avoid the flu jab, however, such as if you have had a serious allergic reaction to the flu vaccine in the past.
People who have an egg allergy may also be at an increased risk of having a bad reaction as some flu vaccines are made using eggs.
If you’re ill and have a high temperature, you should not get the flu vaccine until you have recovered.
But if you just have minor illness with no high temperature, such as a cold, you’re fine to get the jab.
