  • Saturday 30th September 9am - 12pm
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:
    • a serious heart or chest complaint, including asthma
    • serious kidney disease
    • diabetes
    • lowered immunity due to disease or treatment such as steroid medication or cancer treatment
    • if you have ever had a stroke
  • Children born on or after 1.9.2013 and or before 31.8.2015
Patients that do not fall into one of the above categories who would still like a vaccination should contact the surgery.

Our Flu Clinics can now be booked. Please telephone the surgery 
on 01442 265322 to book your appointment.
