Not everybody knows about asymptomatic influenza.
It may surprise you that 4 out of 5 people who have the flu may not show any symptoms and yet they can pass on the virus without even realizing it.

Anyone in close contact with vulnerable people - children, older people and patients - need to be particularly careful.
Vaccination is your best protection, and can be free for those most at risk, including pregnant women, people over 65 and anyone with particular health conditions.
Ask your doctor or pharmacist today about getting a flu vaccination.
