Now is a great time to make sure that you are on the learning disability register.

Being on the GP learning disability register means you will be able to get a free flu vaccine and an Annual Health Check. It means that the GP will write to you to invite you to come for a flu vaccination.

Contact your doctor (your GP) to check you are on the learning disability register and that your details are correct.

This is not a service for autistic people who do not have a learning disability. However, if you have support needs let your doctor know as they will make reasonable adjustments.
