Don’t forget your flu jab – this year we are holding a flu day Saturday 27th October 2018. We will be offering shingles, pneumococcal vaccinations and NHS Health Checks to those who are eligible too.
If you aren’t able to attend our flu day but would still like to have your flu jab please contact the surgery to book an appointment.
Flu is an unpredictable virus that can cause mild illness in most people.
It can cause severe illness and even death among vulnerable groups including older people, pregnant women and people with an underlying health condition.
For otherwise healthy people flu can be very unpleasant, however most people will recover from flu within a week or two.
The flu vaccination is for those patients who are in “at risk” groups, namely;
- Over 65
- IHD and Heart Failure
- Pregnant Ladies
- Autoimmune Disease
