Launch of largest flu vaccination programme

Cumbria County Council is supporting a major drive to help people stay well this winter. 

For the first time, all our youngest primary school children will be eligible to receive the free nasal spray vaccine, as part of the largest school-based vaccination programme in England involving children in 17,000 schools.

As well as protecting against flu, the NHS Stay Well This Winter campaign will urge people over 65 or those with long-term health conditions, such as diabetes, stroke, heart disease or respiratory illness, to prepare for winter with advice on how to ward off common illnesses.
