Seasonal flu is a highly infectious illness caused by a flu virus.
The virus infects your lungs and upper airways, causing a sudden high temperature and general aches and pains.
You could also lose your appetite, feel nauseous and have a dry cough. Symptoms can last for up to a week.
We offer ‘at risk’ groups the flu vaccine at a certain time each year to protect you against the flu virus.
As we are a homeless practice, and homeless people are an ‘at risk’ group, we offer the flu vaccine to all our registered patients.
During the vaccination period, October to March, please attend the practice and ask to see the nurse.
