Who’s eligible for a free flu vaccine?

You’re eligible for a free flu vaccine on the NHS if you fall into any of the following categories:

  • People aged 65 and over (including those who turn 65 by March 31, 2023)

  • People with certain medical conditions

  • Pregnant women

  • People in long-stay residential care

  • People receiving Carer’s Allowance or serving as the main carer for an older or disabled

  • Frontline adult social care workers who cannot get vaccinations from their employer

From mid-October, people aged 50 and over - including those due to turn 50 by March 31 - will be able to get a free flu jab. People in this age group who have a long-term health condition that puts them at higher risk from flu can already get a free jab, however.

This year, more than 40 million people in the UK are entitled to a free flu jab.
