WHY DO WE NEED FLU JABS? BECAUSE IT’S A KILLER TOO
HAVE you had your flu jab? It has never been more important to do so, and the sooner the better. The Academy of Medical Sciences warn there could be twice the flu deaths this year than in a normal year – possibly an alarming 60,000. Experts say the triple threat of Covid, flu and a surge in other respiratory viruses could overwhelm the NHS and cause the Government to reintroduce the restrictions we all hate. According to research published last week, a quarter of Britons aren’t even aware that flu can kill. Thankfully, the biggest-ever flu vaccination programme is now under way, with 40million Britons being invited to have a jab. It will only work if everyone accepts the invitation, so please don’t delay.
