Residents urged to get free flu jab

Source By: NHS City and Hackney Clinical Commissioning Group

City and Hackney residents at additional risk from seasonal flu are being urged to have a free flu jab to avoid life threatening illness.

Flu, which is infectious, can affect anyone but it can be much worse for older people, children and those who have a long-term health condition where complications from the virus can lead to death.

Passed on when a person with the flu coughs or sneezes, flu includes symptoms such as fever, chills, headache, aches and pains in the joints and muscles, and extreme tiredness. As Flu is a virus, it cannot be treated with antibiotics.

The best protection available against the flu is to have a seasonal flu jab or for children aged two-three, a nasal spray.

People most at risk from flu eligible for a free flu jab and include:

  • Everyone aged 65 and over (this is a new and improved vaccine)
  • Everyone under 65 years who has a long term health condition such as a heart problem, kidney or liver disease, lower immunity or diabetes.
  • Children and babies over six months of age with a long term health condition
  • All pregnant women, at any stage of pregnancy
  • All two and three year old children
  • All children in reception class and school years 1, 2, 3, 4 and 5
  • Everyone living in a residential or nursing home
  • Everyone who cares for an older or disabled person
  • People living with someone who has a low immune system
  • All frontline health and social care workers.

If you belong to one of the groups mentioned above, it is important that you have the flu vaccination even if you were vaccinated last year. The flu virus changes so the vaccine is different from year to year.

Speak to your GP, practice nurse or pharmacist to book a vaccination appointment to get the best possible protection. For pregnant women, the vaccine may also be available through maternity services and for frontline health and social care workers, arrangements can be made through their employer.
