It is essential that everyone with diabetes has the flu jab this winter.

People with diabetes are at a greater risk of the flu and this can lead to more severe illnesses, such as pneumonia.

Diabetes UK has put together a guide to help people with diabetes avoid the flu as part of Public Health England’s Stay Well This Winter campaign.
