NHS aims to give 35m flu jabs amid warnings of up to 60,000 deaths
The Guardian says the NHS is to embark on the most ambitious programme of flu jabs in its history amid warnings of up to 60,000 deaths.
The health service aims to immunise a record 35 million people – more than half the UK’s population – against influenza as the country faces its first winter with Covid and flu circulating at the same time.
Experts fear the coming flu season could be particularly deadly because the population will have lost much of its immunity to the virus, which dropped to extremely low levels under Covid restrictions.
