With the winter months approaching, a councillor had his flu jab to help promote the health measure.
Cllr David Coppinger, Royal Borough cabinet member for adult services and health, received his jab at the Claremont Surgery in Cookham Road, Maidenhead, on Monday.
It is available on the NHS to anyone aged 65 or over, pregnant women, and children and adults with health conditions such as respiratory disease, or with a weakened immune system.
Cllr Coppinger said: “It is such a small thing to have done. I do it every year because I know it is the right thing for me.
“It certain people’s cases it can be wonderful. Whether I was photographed or not, I would do it.”
You can obtain a flu jab at your GP, local pharmacy or midwifery service if you are pregnant.
