FLU JAB’S NOW AVAILABLE FOR THOSE AGED 65 OR OVER.
Your free annual flu vaccination for those aged 65 or over are now available. If you turn 65 before 31st March 2021 then you are also eligible. Help us keep you safe this Winter by having the injection at Lake Road Practice. To get your flu vaccination simply turn up on Monday-Friday between 9:30am and 11:30am. No appointment neccessary! For those unable to attend Lake Road we will also be offering vaccinations at John Pounds Surgery on Wednesdays between 9:30am and 11:30am.
PLEASE SUPPORT YOUR OWN GP SURGERY AND HAVE YOUR FLU JAB HERE.
If you choose to have your vaccination somewhere else, such as a pharmacy or supermarket it could put the variety and volume of services we offer at risk.
ABOUT THE FLU
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.
