Frankie says get the flu jab!

Five year old Frankie Cusack is hoping everyone in Salford who needs a flu jab will listen to his advice.

The Broadoak school pupil is the winner of a schools’ competition to design a poster spelling out the importance of getting vaccinated against the potentially deadly virus.

It will be displayed in schools, Gateway centres, libraries,  leisure centres, dental practices, care homes and other community venues.
