More than 850,000 people have been vaccinated against the flu so far this season.

According to figures published by the national health board, vaccinations against the flu started on 15 October after officials purchased almost 1.5 million vaccines.

Doctors recommend that certain risk groups apply for the flu jab, especially people aged over 65, with more than half of people in this age group having already received their vaccination. People are also asked to have their flu jab before the end of the year in order to maximise its effectiveness.
