Brace yourselves.

Quote Flu vaccine numbers are down in Wales, with health experts warning influenza is beginning to circulate.

Almost 1,000 people have been affected by influenza this flu season so far.

But the percentage of those eligible for taking up the offer of a free vaccine is down compared with last winter.

It comes as a report found fear of a vaccine's side effects, fuelled by myths on social media, is the top reason for people refusing them.

So far this winter, 66.9% of those aged 65 and older have been vaccinated against flu, which can cause potentially serious complications including pneumonia in at-risk groups.

The same time last year, the number was 67.9% and rose to 68.8% (451,346 people) by the end of the 2017-18 flu season,
