Flu vaccine could slash your risk of stroke by 23%, suggests study


Why the vaccine is important

The NHS explains: “Flu vaccination is important because, while flu is unpleasant for most people, it can be dangerous and even life threatening for some people, particularly those with certain health conditions.

“The best time to have your flu vaccine is in the autumn or early winter before flu starts spreading. But you can get your vaccine later.”

Why it is important this year

The flu vaccine is particularly important this year as the UK faces a “Tripledemic” of flu, RSV, and COVID-19.
