Flu Clinics 2018-19

 

This season's Saturday flu clinics have now finished however if you are aged 65 and over or if you are in one of the below 'at risk' groups it is important that you have your flu vaccination.  Please telephone the Health Centre and arrange an appointment with the nurse.

 

'At Risk' Groups

  • Anyone aged 65 or older and is a COPD sufferer
  • Asthmatics requiring inhaled steroids
  • Children who have previously been admitted to hospital with a lower respiratory tract infection
  • People suffering from chronic heart disease such as angina, previous heart attack, heart failure or atrial fibrillation.
  • People with chronic kidney or liver disease
  • People who have had a stroke or mini stroke or who suffer from a chronic neurological disease such as MS.
  • All Diabetics; anyone whose immune system is suppressed either due to ill health or medication
  • ALL pregnant women
  • People without a spleen
  • People who are morbidly obese; have a BMI over 40.

Also if you are in any of these groups you are highly likely to be eligible for a pneumococcal vaccine to prevent pneumococcal pneumonia. For most people you will only need one injection, however, some will need a booster dose. Ask about this when you attend for your flu injection.

 

The shingles vaccination is available for anyone aged 70 - 76 and who has not previously been vaccinated and people aged 78 or 79. For all enquiries please telephone the Health Centre on (01945) 773671.
