Annual Flu programme Posted on 26 Sep 2018

The flu programme is a coordinated and evidence based approach to planning for the demands of flu across England.

Each year the NHS prepares for the unpredictability of flu. For most healthy people, flu is an unpleasant but usually self limiting disease with recovery generally within a week.

However, there is a particular risk of severe illness from catching flu for:

  • older people
  • the very young
  • pregnant women
  • those with underlying disease, particularly chronic respiratory or cardiac disease
  • those who are immunosuppressed
