If you fall into any of the categories below you should receive an annual flu vaccination. Please contact our reception staff now to arrange an appointment if you are:
- aged 65 years or over
- a carer
- children aged 2, 3 and 4 (given as a nasal spray)
or suffer from a long term condition e.g:
- chronic respiratory disease
- chronic heart disease
- chronic renal disease
- impaired immune system
If you have not already received a pneumonia vaccination and are over the age of 65 or in one of the “at risk” groups mentioned above, it is advised that you are offered a pneumonia vaccination as well.
Please note the flu vaccination cannot cause flu as it does not contain any “live” virus. It may be tender near the injection site and less often cause a slight temperature and aching muscles for a couple of days.
Make sure you are protected for the winter and book your appointment now.
Following on from the success of previous years we have arranged another Saturday flu clinic for 7th October. We are now booking appointments. If you are eligible for the flu vaccination please contact reception to make an appointment.
