All children aged 2-11 are eligible for a flu jab, along with all children aged 2-17 who have a long-term health condition. They can either have their flu jab at school, at community health clinics or at your GP surgery. Make sure you know how to get one for your child.
Frontline NHS and care workers will receive 250,000 clear masks to help them better communicate with patients who rely on lip reading and facial expressions. The masks will help people with hearing loss as well as people learning disabilities, autism or dementia and foreign language speakers and their interpreters. Doctors, nurses and care workers will use the masks to communicate better with communication-impaired patients and clients during the current COVID pandemic and beyond. The masks are see-through and have an anti-fogging barrier to ensure the nose and mouth are always visible.
