Have you had your flu vaccination?
Flu is an acute viral respiratory infection, which spreads easily from person to person. It doesn’t matter if you are at home, at school, at work, in a shop or on public transport you can catch it.
Immune systems weaken with age and although anyone can catch the flu, certain people can be at a greater risk as their body may find it hard to fight the virus. If you are 65 years or older, or if you are pregnant or you are in an ‘at risk’ category then it is important to protect yourself. Flu can be serious, even deadly so don’t put it off.
At SIMP, we recommend that all patients from the age of 6 months should consider having a flu vaccination.
This year we have supplies of the Trivalent which is the recommended flu vaccination for patients aged 65 and over. We also have the Quadrivalent which is suitable for patients from 6 months up to 64 years. Limited supplies of the Nasal flu vaccine are also available (please contact us for availability and costs).
We are very pleased to be able to offer the flu vaccination free of charge to our member patients this year and £15.00 to non-members.
