In the run up to winter, local health and care partners want to make sure they do everything they can to prevent avoidable illness. 

Not enough people are taking advantage of a free flu vaccination programme to help protect them and we want to understand what, if anything, we can do differently to make sure the more vulnerable groups are protected from potentially more severe disease.

The health system is still battling the coronavirus and while the flu vaccine will not protect from getting coronavirus, it will reduce flu-related illness and ease stress on health services during this pandemic. The Government is also planning to offer the flu vaccine to more people in the population including everyone over 50. That’s why it’s important that we understand your feelings around the flu vaccination.

This survey will take no more than 10 minutes to complete.
