Flu Vaccinations

Flu Clinics for 2019 - 20 will commence from September 2019

 

The Flu Vaccines

The surgery is running opening clinics from the 30th September 2019, and pre-booked appointments. Please have your flu vaccine.


Flu vaccination is available every year on the NHS to help protect adults and children at risk of flu and its complications.

Flu can be unpleasant, but if you are otherwise healthy it will usually clear up on its own within a week.

However, flu can be more severe in certain people, such as:
•anyone aged 65 and over
•pregnant women
•children and adults with an underlying health condition (such as long-term heart or respiratory disease)
•children and adults with weakened immune systems

Anyone in these risk groups is more likely to develop potentially serious complications of flu, such as pneumonia (a lung infection), so it's recommended that they have a flu vaccine every year to help protect them.
