Accessible flu vaccine resources for people with Learning Disabilities and Autism

Accessible flu vaccine resources for people with Learning Disabilities and Autism.

This winter, we are as keen as ever to increase engagement among people with a learning disability and autistic people and improve access and uptake of any routine immunisations individuals might be eligible for, including flu and COVID-19 vaccinations.

For those with a learning disability and autistic people in an at risk group, the risk of serious morbidity or mortality may be greater than for other groups in the general population, so it is important that we do everything we can to prevent and reduce these risks by ensuring people are up to date with their vaccinations.

You might like to bookmark our Stay Well in Winter webpage where you’ll find accessible flu vaccination resources. We will continue to update this page as new resources come online.

Easy-read guides providing information on influenza (flu) and vaccination can be accessed on the gov.uk website.
