The swine flu vaccination programme will get under way in the UK next week, the government has said.
Patients in hospital deemed at risk of the infection - including pregnant women and people with health problems - will get the jab from 21 October.
GPs will start calling patients in the week after until 13 million people in the priority groups are vaccinated.
Meanwhile, front-line troops in Afghanistan will also be offered jabs, the Ministry of Defence said.
The troops and staff supporting operations in Afghanistan - totalling 15,000 people - will be vaccinated immediately after the programme to protect those most at risk in Britain.
