Dr Hilary Jones: “Get your Flu Jab to protect the NHS”
Almost a third of Brits believe that by NOT getting the flu vaccine, they are helping to relieve the NHS from stress, according to consumer research.
TV medic Dr Hilary Jones says this couldn’t be further from the truth as they may end up needing the NHS’s help, taking up much needed hospital beds should they get infected.
Government data shows flu vaccine uptake remains at less than 50% in those aged under 65 who are in an at-risk group.
