How effective is the flu vaccine?

Flu vaccine is the best protection we have against an unpredictable virus that can cause unpleasant illness in children and severe illness and death among at-risk groups, including older people, pregnant women and those with an underlying medical health condition.

It will not stop all flu viruses and the level of protection may vary, so it’s not a 100% guarantee that you’ll be flu-free, but if you do get flu after vaccination, it’s likely to be milder and shorter-lived than it would otherwise have been.

There’s also evidence to suggest that the flu vaccine can reduce your risk of having a stroke.
