Flu Clinics 2016

Dated: 14-Sep-16

Seasonal flu is a highly infectious illness caused by a flu virus.

The virus infects your lungs and upper airways, causing a sudden high temperature and general aches and pains.

You could also lose your appetite, feel nauseous and have a dry cough. Symptoms can last for up to a week.

We offer ‘at risk’ groups the flu vaccine at a certain time each year to protect you against the flu virus.

You may be invited for a flu jab if you are:
  • over 65 years of age
  • pregnant
or have:
  • a serious heart or chest complaint, including asthma
  • serious kidney disease
  • diabetes
  • lowered immunity due to disease or treatment such as steroid medication or cancer treatment
  • if you have ever had a stroke
ALL healthy children who are aged 2, 3 and 4 years old – this is in the form of a nasal spray.

Our Flu Clinics can now be booked.

If you have any queries please contact the surgery.
