Richard Stocker asks - Should my son who has aortic stenosis get called in by the doc for a flu jab?

Thanks for the question Richard.

If someone has a long term heart problem then it is usually recommended that they have a vaccine to protect them against flu.

This is because this group of people are at a higher risk of complications if they get flu.

If you or your son has not been contacted by his GP, then please book an appointment with the doctor or practice nurse to discuss him having the flu vaccine.

For more information, have a look at the NHS website.
