The NHS are encouraging the Yorkshire public if they are eligible for the flu jab to get vaccinated ahead of the winter.
The elderly, pregnant women, children and those with long-term conditions are being urged to get their free flu vaccination.

Those eligible for free vaccinations are below:
- Those aged 65 and over
- People with long term health conditions
- Health care workers
- Children aged two and three
- School children up to year four
- Children aged six months and above with some health conditions
The vaccination is available at pharmacies and GP practices
