BLACKTHORN HEALTH CENTRE ANNUAL ADULT FLU CLINIC
SATURDAY 14TH OCTOBER FROM 8AM BOOKING NOW!!
Flu vaccinations are available every year on the NHS for people in one of the 'at risk' groups to protect people who are at risk of flu and its complications. Flu can be unpleasant, but if you are otherwise healthy it will usually clear up on its own within a week.
However, flu can be more severe in certain people such as:
- Patients aged 65 and over
- Pregnant women
- people with an underlying health condition
- People with long-term heart or Respiratory disease
- People with a weakened immune system
If you're in one of these at risk groups, you're more likely to develop potentially serious com-plications such as Pneumonia (a Lung infection), so it's well worth having a flu jab every year to protect you. Flu jabs for people in the at risk groups are available free on the NHS.
If you are in any doubt as to whether you are in one of the at risk groups please call and speak to a Receptionist who can advise you.
