The weather may still be warm, but winter is fast approaching. Before you think about getting your fleece kit and water proof vest out, have you thought about getting a flu shot? We are all too busy to get sick, and even if you are fit and healthy, the flu can cause severe illness, so vaccination is your best defence for a flu free winter.
