Flu season is here!
The flu vaccine is a safe and effective vaccine. It’s offered every year on the NHS to help protect people at risk of getting seriously ill from flu.
Many adults, most children and ALL pregnant women are eligible for the free flu vaccine.
Flu vaccination is important because:
- more people are likely to get flu this winter as fewer people will have built up natural immunity to it during the COVID-19 pandemic
- if you get flu and COVID-19 at the same time, research shows you’re more likely to be seriously ill
- getting vaccinated against flu and COVID-19 will provide protection for you and those around you for both these serious illnesses
If you’ve had COVID-19, it’s safe to have the flu vaccine. It will still be effective at helping to prevent flu.
More information about the flu vaccine is available on the NHS website.
Please call reception on 01254 617630 to book an appointment for your free flu vaccine. Weekday and Weekend appointments are available.
