Influenza 2014/15


Many of us don’t know how serious flu can be.

Especially for people with heart or lung problems (or any other long-term health condition).

The same goes for anyone who’s pregnant or over 65 years old. Its important if you’re in any of these groups, to have a flu vaccine. It’s safe, only takes a few minutes, and because it doesn’t contain live viruses, it can’t give you flu.

This year children between 2- 5 are also being offered nasal flu vaccine in the surgery.

.If you are entitled to a free flu vaccine – please phone the surgery and book an appointment as soon as you can.’
