2014/15 Flu Vaccinations
Flu is a highly infectious illness that spreads rapidly through the coughs and sneezes of people carrying the virus.
Flu symptoms can hit quite suddenly and severely. They usually include fever, chills, head-aches and aching muscles. You can often get a cough and sore throat. Because flu is caused by a virus and not bacteria, antibiotics won't treat it.
Anyone can get flu, but it can be more serious for certain people, such as:
At Risk Patients, including:-
- People who have a serious medical condition
- Pregnant women
- Some children
Therefore the NHS offers free vaccinations to all those patients 'Over 65' or in a recognised 'At Risk' group.
If you are over 65 and would like a Flu vaccination, please ring the surgery, selecting option '2' after 10:30am. If you are in one of the 'At Risk' groups, we will be writing to you when you need to book your appointment.
