Flu season is here!

Please note we will be contacting patients who are eligible for the flu vaccine in the coming weeks. Our clinics will be held from October .  If you have a chronic disease, aged over 65yrs, a carer or pregnant you are eligible for the flu vaccine.  This year we are offering the QUADRIVALENT flu vaccine that protects against 4 types of flu.  Some other providers of the flu vaccine may not be able to offer this version and may still be offering the TRIVALENT vaccine which protects against 3 types of flu.  If you want to make an appointment for your flu vaccine contact the surgery.

Seasonal Flu Vaccination

Flu (also known as influenza) is a highly infectious illness caused by the flu virus. It spreads rapidly through small droplets coughed or sneezed into the air by an infected person.   For most people, flu is unpleasant but not serious. You will usually recover within a week.

Studies have shown that flu vaccines provide effective protection against the flu, although protection may not be complete and may vary between people. Protection from the vaccine gradually decreases and flu strains change over time. Therefore, new vaccines are made each year and people at risk of flu are encouraged to be vaccinated every year.

The flu vaccination is offered to people in at-risk groups. These people are at greater risk of developing serious complications if they catch flu, such as pregnant women and elderly people.
