The booklet is aimed at vulnerable people that are at higher risk of illness if they get the virus, identified by Public Health England as people aged 70 or more, anyone living with a long term health problem and pregnant women, although some of the practical information might be useful for others too. The booklet helps people to understand the current public health advice, practical tips on staying well at home and where to get help locally: http://edition.pagesuite-professional.co.uk/Launch.aspx?EID=00d6588e-e91d-4b9e-a278-ebf19e302a64
