Flu Vaccines Still Available
The ‘flu is a highly infectious illness that spreads rapidly through the coughs and sneezes of people who are carrying the virus. It remains a major cause of illness especially in the elderly and those with chronic diseases. Immunisation has shown to reduce the risk of contracting the flu and its possible complications, such as pneumonia.
As part of the National Flu programme the vaccine is offered free to specific groups of patients. These include those aged 65 and over, pregnant women, children aged two to four, carers and those with chronic conditions such as diabetes, respiratory disease, heart, liver , kidney or neurological disease, problems with your spleen, and conditions resulting in a weakened immune system.
Please make sure you attend for your jab to ensure you are protected for as long as possible. You can book online or by phoning/attending the surgery.
If you have your flu jab done privately or elsewhere, please let us know so that we can keep your medical record up-to-date.
