So, what is flu exactly?

Influenza, or flu, is a common infection in the UK. There are many different strains of the flu virus every year and symptoms can include fever, headache, sore throat and all-over aches and pains.

Most flu outbreaks usually happen in late autumn or winter and for most people it’s an unpleasant, but not life threatening, condition -the Boots' Winter Flu Jab Service can help you keep flu bugs at bay.

What does the flu vaccination do?

The current winter flu vaccination is designed to protect against the viruses responsible for causing most cases of flu, including the H1N1 (swine flu) virus. It’s a simple and quick way to help you fight the bug and stay healthy throughout the winter months.
