Make sure you get your flu jab


The flu virus strikes in winiter and can be far more serious than you think. Flu can lead to serious complications such as bronchitis and pneumonia, and it can be deadly.


That's why the flu jab is free if you're aged 65 or over, of if you have a long-term health condition. If you have children or grandchildren aged two, three or four or in school years one or two, they are eligible for a free flu vaccination.


And if you are the main carer of an older or disabled person you may also be eligible for the free flu jab.


Also, don't forget that if you're aged 65 or over, you are elibible for the pneumococcal vaccine, which will help protect you from pneumococcal disease such as pneumonia.


Find out if you - or someone you know - are in one of the eligible groups that can have a free NHS flu jab here http://www.nhs.uk/Conditions/Flu/Pages/Prevention.aspx



To have your flu vaccination, please call (01263) 513148 and book an appointment with one of our Health Care Assistants.




Self Care


If you are otherwise fit and healthy, there is usually no need to see a doctor if you have flu-like symptoms.


The best remedy is to rest at home, keep warm and drink plenty of water to avoid dehydration. You can take paracetamol or ibuprofen to lower a high temperature and relieve aches if necessary.


Stay of work or school until you're feeling better. For most people, this will take about a week.
