Don’t swallow up your NHS - use it wisely this winter

Don't swallow up your NHS

Now’s the time to get your free flu jab! 

Local residents in at risk groups are being reminded to get their free flu jab.  Adults over 65; those with long term health conditions; children aged two to eight; carers and pregnant women may all be eligible.

Every year, hundreds of thousands of people see their GP and tens of thousands are hospitalised because of flu.  Symptoms of flu can be very unpleasant and last for several weeks. It can lead to more serious complications like middle ear infections in children, and pneumonia or bronchitis for those with underlying health conditions, and in some cases it can be fatal.  

Flu is a highly contagious illness that spreads rapidly through the population.  It can cause serious complications for at risk groups, such as the elderly, expectant mothers and people with long term health conditions.

Although it’s not possible to know which strains of flu will circulate each winter, the flu vaccination is still the best protection against an unpredictable virus which can cause severe illness and deaths amongst vulnerable groups.

Vaccines are available between October 2017 and March 2018, so contact your GP or pharmacy now – it’s free because you need it. For more information visit www.nhs.uk/staywell
