Flu Immunisation

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
  • pregnant

or have:

  • Heart Failure
  • COPD / Asthma
  • Chronic kidney disease
  • Diabetes
  • Lowered immunity due to disease or treatment such as steroid medication or cancer treatment
  • If you have ever had a stroke
  • If you have any queries please contact the surgery.
