BE A FLU FIGHTER

What if you knew that there was a disease that kills half a million people worldwide (WHO figures) each year and that many of these could be prevented by a simple treatment that takes under 5 minutes to get? Wouldn't you want to protect yourself, your family and your friends? This disease is the flu and the vaccine is safe and simple to give.

If you are aged 2 or 3 years old*, aged 65 years or over, pregnant, a carer or have a long term condition you are eligible for the flu vaccine for free. For more information about the vaccine and to check whether you are eligible, see the NHS Choices website.

To get your flu jab, speak to reception to book your appointment.

Please note, we cannot vaccinate children in reception - year 4 who miss the school vaccine unless they are eligible for some other reason (such as a long term condition like asthma or diabetes.)
