Flu vaccination: easy read flu leaflet

An easy to read leaflet providing information on influenza (flu) and vaccination.


Helping stop you getting flu: information for people with learning disability


This leaflet is aimed at people who have, or care for someone with a learning disability. It provides easy to read advice on:

  • the flu virus and why you need a vaccine
  • signs of flu
  • flu jabs and where to get one

People with learning disabilities and their carers can get a free flu jab from their doctor or pharmacist, because they may have more problems if they catch flu. This leaflet can also be useful for people whose first language is not English and can also be for people with a low reading age.
