As we approach the winter, it is imperative that everyone who needs a flu vaccination takes up the offer to have one.

I would urge constituents from right across my Aldridge-Brownhills constituency who are eligible to get vaccinated. A flu vaccine this year could make an important difference if you were also catch coronavirus in the months ahead.

Controlling the spread of coronavirus and protecting the NHS is the responsibility of us all and we must all wash our hands, cover our faces and make space‚Äďas well as taking sensible steps like getting a flu jab this year.
