ARE YOU ELIGIBLE for a FLU vaccination?
The FLU can attack any of us but can be more of a threat if you are in one of the following groups:
- Aged 65 years and over
- A carer
- or have:
- a serious heart or chest complaint, including asthma
- serious kidney disease
- lowered immunity due to disease or treatment such as steroid medication or cancer treatment
- if you have ever had a stroke
- chronic liver disease
ALL healthy children who are aged 2, 3 and 4 years old are invited to receive a new flu vaccine this year. This will be a nasal spray. For more information
The flu vaccination does not prevent coughs and colds but it will defend you against the flu virus during this current season which has been identified by the WHO.
