Upwell Health Centre Flu Vaccination 2017

 

It is hard to believe we are almost at flu vaccination time again. We have already set up our flu clinics. They will be on the following dates:

 

Sat 23rd September (8AM to 11AM)

Sat 30th September (8AM to 11AM)

Sat 7th October       (8AM to 11AM)

Sat 28th October     (8AM to 11AM)

 

You can book an appointment for any of these clinics at reception from August onwards.

Remember we recommend flu vaccination for anyone over 64, who is currently pregnant or for younger people who suffer from chronic lung disease, such as asthma or COPD, diabetes, heart disease or various conditions where your immunity is reduced.

 

We again will be offering nasal flu vaccine to children in the target population, however some children will be offered vaccination at school. We will run separate clinics for those children who need a flu vaccination so please do not book them into the Saturday clinics.

 

We are offering a pneumococcal pneumonia vaccination to everyone over 64 and we are also continuing with the shingles vaccination campaign. This year we can offer a jab to: people born on or after 2nd September 1946 and are aged 70 and people born on or after 2nd September 1938 who are aged 78 or 79. If you are unsure if you are eligible please ask the doctor or nurse at the time of your flu vaccination.

 

The Upwell Patient Participation Group will once again be holding a raffle over the four dates with lots of great prizes kindly donated  from local businesses so don’t forget to bring your purses and wallets with you!
