Flu vaccination is available every year on the NHS to help protect adults and children at risk from flu and its complications. In light of the risk of flu and COVID-19 co-circulating this winter, the national flu immunisation programme will be absolutely essential to protecting vulnerable people and supporting the resilience of the health and care system. The vaccination changes each year, so even if you had the vaccination last year, you won’t be protected against this year’s flu strain.
Here, at Penrose Surgery, our number one priority is ensuring the safety of our patients and staff. We will therefore continue to operate with our strict COVID-safe infection control, throughout the practice.
