The best to reduce your chances of getting flu is to have a flu jab each year during the autumn - usually between October and November.
Flu vaccination is free of charge for people in the "at risk" group.
You need to have a jab each year to maintain your immunity, as the flu virus is always changing.
The jab will not stop you getting coughs and colds, but can protect you against the latest strains of flu.
If you are over 65 years of age or suffer from
COPD, Asthma, Diabetes, CHD, Chronic Liver or Kidney disease, lowered immunity, chronic neurological disease or if you are pregnant or are a carer, book your flu jab now.
Call your practice for further details and to make an appointment.
