Worthing and Adur EXACT (WAE),

West Sussex County Council is encouraging vulnerable people to be safe and get the flu jab this winter.

Cabinet Member for Adults’ Services Peter Catchpole said: “Flu can be life-threatening and prove fatal. I would encourage all residents who are eligible to receive a free flu vaccine to contact their local GP surgery and take up the offer.

“We’re also encouraging our frontline social care workers to have the vaccine to help ensure they’re protected and that we can continue to provide a full service over the flu season.”

The flu vaccination is available for free to:

· Pregnant women
· People who are over 65
· Carers
· People with long term conditions (such as diabetes, asthma, heart disease and multiple sclerosis)

To find out more, contact your local GP or pharmacist.
