'At risk' groups urged to get flu shots by health body

Public Health England and the NHS are urging people in "at risk" groups to get vaccinated against flu this winter.

These include pregnant women, young children, over 65s and those with conditions such as asthma and diabetes.

Despite a mild winter last year, 904 people were admitted to intensive care with flu and 98 of them died.

Dr Paul Cleary from Public Health England spoke to BBC Breakfast.
