Getting your free flu jab as a cancer patient

Are you a Christie patient undergoing cancer treatment? You can get a free flu vaccine to protect you from the risk of flu.

People at high risk from COVID-19 are also those most at risk from flu. We are urging everyone who is eligible to take up the free flu vaccine this winter.

Please arrange to have a flu vaccine with your GP to reduce your risk from flu this winter. Members of your household can also have a free flu vaccine, as this will further reduce your risk.

If you are on a clinical trial, please speak to your research team or oncologist before having the flu vaccine.
