Health workers should be vaccinated by their employers unless they fall into any of the categories above.

The vaccines do not contain live bugs and so can’t cause flu.

The vaccination will take up to 14 days to give you protection though will not protect you if you have been exposed to the virus before you had the jab.   Vaccination is offered between September and early November because flu is more active from the middle of November.
