As we enter October, the weather is starting to change, central heating is being switched on and people are digging out their warmer clothes.

Another important way to start getting winter-ready is to get your flu vaccine. Flu can be a serious illness if you have a lung condition, causing your symptoms to flare up and your condition to get worse.

This year it’s more important than ever to get the free flu vaccine if you have a lung condition, as it’s predicted that there will be much higher levels of flu around, compared to the 2020/21 season.

Try to book yours during the autumn, if you can.

You can read more about why getting the flu vaccine is a good idea if you have a lung condition on our Keeping well in the cold health information page.
