The comments made by Sajid Javid, the Secretary of State for Health and Social Care, on 6 January 2022.
It is incredible that more people aged 65 and over have received their flu vaccine this year than ever before. Getting your winter vaccines – whether that is your flu jab if eligible or your booster jab – is one of the most important things people can do this winter.
Record numbers of people took up the offer of a free flu vaccine last year and the programme is expanding even further this year, with a record 35 million people in England eligible.
Don’t delay – all those eligible should book their winter vaccines as soon as possible.
