Remember - a flu jab will not give you flu!
Influenza, or 'flu', is a highly contagious acute viral infection that affects people of all ages. It typically starts suddenly with fever, chills, headache, aching muscles, general prostration and a cough or other respiratory symptoms. While most people recover without complications in 1-2 weeks, flu can cause serious illness and death, especially in the very young and the elderly. Flu epidemics occur mainly in the winter months and can result in widespread disruption to healthcare and other services. A vaccine is produced every year based on the strains of virus expected to be circulating.
Do you CARE for Someone?
You may not be aware that the Government would like to recognise all carer's and the wonderful job they are doing for family and friends. The Surgery now have an Information package to give to carer's with advice on how to obtain support. If you are a carer, come and have a chat with us in reception.
