People most ‘at risk’ should be vaccinated to stay well and healthy this winter
While flu is unpleasant for anyone that catches it, for some people it can lead to serious complications. Those most ‘at risk’ include people aged over 65, pregnant women, anyone with a long term condition like asthma, diabetes, heart disease, chronic kidney and liver disease, neurological disease or with a weakened immune system.
This year, immunisation by nasal spray is available for children aged between two and four years old.’
GP practices across Oxfordshire have been holding seasonal flu vaccination clinics since October, and ‘at risk’ patients are advised to contact their practice and book an appointment for a vaccination.
More information about flu immunisation is available on the NHS Choices website
