Thinking about not having the flu jab?

Pete from the Welsh Ambulance Service shares his story of his decision not to have the flu jab and how that cost him and his family. 

"I'll always remember her being told to get my family to come to the hospital really quickly."

"But worst of all I gave it to my partner and in passing on the flu and the impact that that had on her and others was huge and that can never be underestimated."

"Whilst the decision of mine was to not have the flu jab, it really cost me. It also cost others around me. Even if you think you're indestructible, watching that kind of illness fall on someone you love, it's heartbreaking."
