Flu Immunisation to keep you safe and healthy!
Getting a flu vaccination early each winter is the best way to protect yourself and your family against the effects of the flu: headaches, fever and aches and pains. The vaccine also greatly reduces your risk of suffering serious complications that can occasionally develop from the flu. Being fit, young, and healthy will not protect you from the flu. Influenza can be life-threatening, especially for the elderly, young children and people with chronic illnesses or compromised immune systems.
Our nurse(s) do the yearly flu vaccines, usually in March till December. There is a small charge but it may be free if you fit the criteria below.
Influenza vaccination is provided FREE for those who need it most:
- People aged 65 and over
- People under 65 years of age who have a chronic health condition such as:
- cardiovascular disease
- respiratory disease
- kidney disease
- immune suppression or deficiency
- Pregnant women (any trimester)
- Children aged 4 years and under who have a significant history of respiratory illness
