Helping carers get protected against flu


20 / 11 / 2014 4.17pm

This year’s flu fighter campaign has worked with The Carers' Trust to produce resources for healthcare workers to encourage carers to have the flu vaccination.

Many patients who rely on unpaid carers would be unable to cope alone if their carer caught the flu, yet many carers do not realise they are entitled to receive the flu vaccince for free.

The Queen’s Nursing Institute has developed a resource specifically for nurses, to help them support carers and signpost them to the support they need. This online learning tool could be used in conjunction with our carers’ resources to help carers across the UK gain access to the flu vaccination that they are entitled to.
