Drop in number of vulnerable people having free flu jab


Many potential flu victims have not been vaccinated despite winter approaching, according to new figures.

The Department of Health in England says the number of pensioners who have been given the jab has fallen compared with the same period last year.

They have also seen a drop for those under 65 who suffer from medical complications like asthma and diabetes.
