FLU CLINICS 2015
Seasonal flu is a highly infectious illness caused by a flu virus.
The virus infects your lungs and upper airways, causing a sudden high temperature and general aches and pains.
You could also lose your appetite, feel nauseous and have a dry cough. Symptoms can last for up to a week.
We offer 'at risk' groups the flu vaccine at a certain time each year to protect you against the flu virus.
You may be invited for a flu jab if you are:
- over 65 years of age
- or have:
- a serious heart or chest complaint, including asthma (requiring a steroid inhaler)
- serious kidney disease
- lowered immunity due to disease or treatment such as steroid medication or cancer treatment
- if you have ever had a stroke
- ALL healthy children who are aged 2, 3 and 4 years old - this is in the form of a nasal spray.
IF YOU HAVEN'T HAD YOUR FLU VACCINE YET, PLEASE BOOK IN ASAP
