Flu Clinics for 2020/2021
As the focus on Covid-19 approaches it’s anniversary in the next few months it is becoming clear the flu virus refuses to take a back seat. In fact the H1N1 strain, more commonly known as ‘swine flu’ has been circulating and predominantly affecting members of the population at the opposite end to Covid-19, that is healthy children. In fact, figures for the UK indicate that children are more likely to become infected with the flu virus. Furthermore, more than 80% of young children were perfectly fit and healthy with no underlying health problems before catching the virus.
As a surgery we are continually monitoring health trends for the well-being of our patients. We have noticed a lower uptake of flu vaccination for children who are eligible for the jab which means that they remain vulnerable to infection with flu over the approaching winter.
In fact, the flu vaccination is most effective in this age group. So, your child will have a lower chance of catching flu and if they are unfortunate enough to be infected the symptoms are likely to be much less severe. We would therefore encourage parents of children who are eligible for the flu vaccination to make arrangements for vaccination. This includes children aged 2 or 3 years old as at 31st August 2020 and any older children who have a condition that makes them 'at risk', all other children should be vaccinated in schools. If you are uncertain if your child is eligible to have their vaccination done in the Surgery, please contact us. .
We are still awaiting the 'go ahead' to invite the new cohort of patients aged 50 - 64 years old without a condition that would usually place them in the eligible for flu vaccination group. As soon as we get this, we will be writing out to these patients. Please click here for more information on how, when and why we are running our clinics differently this year.
