Flu Aware NI is a Public Health Agency website with information on seasonal flu. This site provides a comprehensive guide to flu, including information for the public on who is most at risk, who needs a seasonal flu vaccine, how to get the vaccine and what to do if you think you have the flu, as well as information on prevention of further infection.
In 2013/14, the Public Health Agency (PHA) launched the first phase of a programme that will offer flu vaccine to all children aged two to 16 years inclusive.
This will help protect children against flu and reduce its spread. In the 2013/14 flu season, the vaccine was offered to children aged two and three years (PDF) and to those in school year primary six (PDF).
This section provides everything you need to know about flu, including who should get vaccinated, the signs and symptoms of flu, advice on prevention and how to look after yourself if you get flu.
