Families in Tipperary are being encouraged to ensure elderly relatives get their flu vaccine as it could save their lives.

The virus is likely to peak in the New Year which is likely to result in increased overcrowding at hospitals in the region.

CEO of the UL Hospital’s Group Colette Cowan says getting the flu vaccine could make all the difference both for the patient and hospital staff.
