Pensioners urged to get flu jab before winter

Pensioners have been urged to take advantage of a free flu jab offer to stay protected this winter.

NHS Lincolnshire recommend that everyone over 65 contact their GP to arrange an appointment as soon as possible.

Doctor Tony Hill said: “If you are over 65, it is vital to get a flu jab to protect you at the time of year when you are most vulnerable.”

73 per cent of over 65s in Lincolnshire took the jab last year.
