Why have a Flu Vaccination?

Last year in Wales, more than a million people got their flu vaccine. That’s around one in every three people. Flu is more likely to be serious if you have a long term health condition, are pregnant, or are older. The people at high risk of COVID-19 are generally the same people at increased risk of becoming very ill with flu.

Am I eligible?

If any of the following apply to you, even if you feel healthy, you are more likely to get complications from flu if you catch it, and you are advised to have a flu vaccine.

The pneumococcal vaccine helps protect against serious illnesses like pneumonia and meningitis. It's recommended for people at higher risk of these illnesses, such as babies and adults aged 65 and over.



Shingles (herpes zoster) is caused by the varicella zoster virus, the same virus which causes chickenpox. Unlike other infectious diseases, you don’t catch it from someone else. Most people had chickenpox when they were young. The virus that caused chickenpox can stay in your body for the rest of your life without you knowing it is there. The virus can then become active again later in life. It is not known exactly why it does this, but most cases are thought to be caused by having lowered immunity (protection against infections and diseases), which may be due to age, illness, stress or medication. 

This table shows who is eligible for a shingles vaccine from 1 September 2023.
