High risk group eligible for help

The patients who are at highest risk of becoming seriously ill from viral infection, should receive a letter from the NHS.

These are the same people who get priority recall for influenza vaccine (flu jab) every year.

If you (or someone you know) have not received the letter, you may view a copy here:
