East: Third Of Pregnant Women Having Flu Jab

Heart's being told that only a third of pregnant women in Norfolk and Suffolk are taking up the flu jab being offered to them

It's the second year that it's been FREE for pregnant women to have it because they're in an at-risk group.

GP's are now sending out reminders to patients to try and get them to come in.

The at-risk groups for seasonal flu are adults and children aged six months to 64 years who have:

A heart problem, a chest complaint or breathing difficulties including bronchitis and emphysema, a kidney disease, lowered immunity due to disease or treatment such as steroid medication or cancer treatment, a liver disease, had a stroke or a transient ischaemic attack, diabetes, a neurological condition, a problem with, or removal of the spleen or a pregnant woman.
