Caldbeck surgery  is running  their Flu Clinics this year at Caldbeck Paris hall, CA7 8EU

Flu occurs every year, usually in the winter, which is why it’s sometimes called seasonal flu. It is a highly infectious disease with symptoms that come on very quickly.

Colds are much less serious and usually start gradually with a stuffy or runny nose and a sore throat. A bad bout of flu can be much worse than a heavy cold.

The most common symptoms of flu are fever, chills, headache, aches and pains in the joints and muscles, and extreme tiredness, healthy individuals usually recover within 2 to 7 days but, for some, the disease can lead to hospitalization, permanent disability or even death.

Flu vaccination provides the best protection against an unpredictable virus which infects many people

The vaccination is free and recommended yearly for those most at risk from flu.

This includes;

  • adults 50 and over
  • people with certain medical conditions   ( including children in at-risk groups from 6 months of age)
  • pregnant women
  • people living with someone who’s at high risk from coronavirus ( on the NHS shielded patient list)
  • children aged 2 and 3 on 31 August 2021
  • children in primary school
  • children in year 7 ( secondary school)
  • frontline heath or social care workers

If there is someone you rely on to care for you, please ask them to contact their own GP Practice as they may be eligible for a free flu vaccination.

 Our next  flu clinics  will be :

Thursday 14th October 9.30 – 1.30 pm

Wednesday 20th October 3.30 – 6.30 pm

Please note that we will be using the hall side doors for entry and exit only, as the front steps aren’t suitable for limited-mobility access. To preserve safe queueing and social distance, all entry will be via the right hand side door, and all exit via the left-hand door.

When arriving for flu vaccination – be on time and wear clothes that allow access to the top of your shoulder – this shortens time spent at the Hall and it helps maintain social distancing reducing the risk of COVID-19 infection. Please use the hand sanitiser stations freely

We look forward to seeing you soon
