A campaign’s been launched to help parents in Peterborough tell the difference between a cold and flu.
Research shows many think flu is just a bad cold but the virus can cause serious complications.
Free vaccinations are available for children over two and up to Year Two.
Officials say, if you need guidance when your pharmacy is closed, call 111 to talk to a trained NHS professional. They will advise you on the best course of action.
