ITS FLU SEASON!!
Flu is an unpredictable virus that can cause mild or unpleasant illness in most people.
It can cause severe illness and even death among vulnerable groups including older people, pregnant women and people with an underlying health condition.
Certain people are more likely to develop potentially serious complications of flu, such as bronchitis and pneumonia. These people are advised to have a flu jab each year.
For otherwise healthy people, flu can be very unpleasant. Most people will recover from flu within a week or two.
Who should have the flu jab?
The injected flu vaccine is offered free of charge on the NHS to people who are at risk. This is to ensure they are protected against catching flu and developing serious complications.
You are eligible to receive a free flu jab if you:
- are 65 years of age or over
- are pregnant
- have certain medical conditions
- are living in a long-stay residential care home or other long-stay care facility
- receive a carer's allowance, or you are the main carer for an elderly or disabled person whose welfare may be at risk if you fall ill
PLEASE CALL PICTON MEDICAL CENTRE TODAY SO SEE IF YOU ARE ELIGIBLE FOR THE FLU JAB!
Important changes to the Bradford City & Bradford District Pharmacy First Service.

After this date you will no longer be able to claim Pharmacy First provisions to adults.
