Flu vaccine- get yours now!

Winter always brings with it the risk of flu and I would like to encourage anyone who falls into one of the vulnerable groups to make sure you get a flu vaccination. I have the vaccination every year as I lost my spleen in a riding accident and so am immuno compromised, but if you are aged over 65, a pregnant woman or have an underlying health condition such as heart or respiratory disease or a weakened immune system, please do arrange with your GP surgery to get the flu jab sooner rather than later. Children aged 2 and 3 and in Reception and Years 1-5 are also recommended to get the flu jab.

The NHS has more information about the flu jab, and you can find out more here. It really could be a lifesaver!
