FLU

The Surgery will be holding Flu Clinics for adults and children who are in one of the 'At Risk' groups and inviting young children aged 6 months to 3 years to a separate clinic.

 

FLU CLINICS FOR ADULTS AND CHILDREN 

NHS England recommends that patients have a flu jab if they are 65 or over, or have any of the following conditions (however old): 

  • Serious heart or chest complaint including severe asthma
  • Serious kidney disease
  • Serious liver disease
  • Diabetes
  • Lowered immunity due to disease or steroid medication or cancer treatment
  • You are a carer for an elderly or disabled person
  • Pregnant
  • A BMI (Body Mass Index) of 40 or more – this is recommended by the Department of Health because there is an increased risk of complications if you catch flu.

Saturday Drop In Clinics (no appointment needed) are being held from 8.30 to 10.30 am on:

  • 30 September
  • 14 October
  • 28 October

FLU CLINICS FOR YOUNG CHILDREN ONLY (aged 6 months to 3 years)

The vaccination is free and recommended for young children, and will be given by a quick and simple spray up the nose.  Drop-in clinics are being held during the day, at 12.30 pm on:

  • Tuesday 10 October
  • Tuesday 17 October
