PEOPLE over the age of 65 with a current health condition are being reminded they have access to a free flu vaccine every year.

The NHS will provide those who qualify with the jab, free of charge, to protect them against flu.

Every year in Scotland, around two-thirds of people who get severe flu have a serious health condition such as diabetes and lung or heart disease.

With the colder months of the year approaching, it could be the perfect time to get covered.
