People aged over 65, pregnant women and young children are all now eligible for free flu jabs in Milton Keynes.

This is the first time that vaccinations are being offered to children aged two to four, with most children likely to receive it as a nasal spray in each nostril.

People are at greater risk from suffering from flu during winter and the start of October is the best time to protect yourself; full protection from the vaccine takes up to two weeks to develop and can help vulnerable patients prevent further health complications associated with flu, such as pneumonia.
