And thirdly, getting vaccinated against flu and Covid will provide the best protection for you and those around you against severe disease.
“If you’ve had COVID-19, it’s safe to have the flu vaccine. It will still be effective at helping to prevent flu,” the NHS assured.
The flu vaccine is available at:
- Your GP surgery
- A pharmacy offering the service
- Your midwifery service if you’re pregnant
- A hospital appointment.
How long does the flu vaccine work for?
Once you’ve been jabbed, it takes up to 14 days for the vaccine to provide protection against the virus.
