Flu jab reminder
If you’ve listened to the news over the last few days, you’ll have heard that flu cases are on the increase, so it has never been more important to get your flu jab and make sure you are protected.
It’s not just the general population which are susceptible to flu: staff, particularly those who are in close contact with members of the public on day to day basis, as well as residents, are susceptible to flu. Seven out of 10 people with flu show no symptoms, so even if you feel fit and healthy, you can still unwittingly infect vulnerable people.
If you’ve been stuck for a new year’s resolution, why don’t you decide to become a flu fighter and get your jab?
Although the flu vaccine clinics for council staff have now finished, you can still go to your local pharmacist for a small cost. For those in Shropshire, we have a list of pharmacies in Shropshire who are administering flu vaccines.
You may even be entitled to a free flu jab. Those eligible for a free flu vaccine include:
- Older people aged 65 and over.
- Children aged 2 and 3 years.
- Children in reception class and school years 1 to 4 (ie born between 1 September 2008 and 31 August 2013).
- People with long term conditions – such as like COPD; bronchitis, emphysema; diabetes; heart, kidney or liver disease or have suffered a stroke.
- Pregnant women.
- Carers – whether caring in an unpaid or paid role.
