Flu Vaccinations

Message from the BSW CCG:

This year, it’s more important than ever that as many people who are eligible for a flu vaccination have one.

Flu can lead to incredibly serious, sometimes fatal, health complications among vulnerable groups such as older people and those with health conditions that put them at risk. Getting vaccinated not only protects the individual but also those around them, including the health and care professionals working hard to look after us in extremely challenging conditions.

More people than ever before are eligible for a free NHS flu vaccination this year, and the NHS are encouraging all of those people to take up the opportunity.

Visit the NHS website www.nhs.uk for more information on who is eligible for a vaccine and where it is offered. Your GP or local pharmacy will also be able to advise whether you are eligible, and you can book an appointment with them too.
