As frontline healthcare staff we would like to help you protect your patients, family, friends and colleagues by getting an annual flu vaccination. As you are a frontline healthcare worker your GP may provide you with a free flu vaccination. Some of our client Trusts may also provide you with a free flu vaccination as part of their vaccination programme for their permanent staff. Alternatively, at a small cost, you can also get your flu jab from supermarkets or your local pharmacy.
Flu viruses are constantly changing and every year different flu viruses can spread. Getting vaccinated against the flu every season protects against the main influenza viruses that research indicates will cause the most illness in that season.
Influenza (flu) is a contagious respiratory disease that can result in time off work and in certain individuals, may lead to serious complications. Anyone can get the flu and vaccination is the single best way to protect against it. Even healthy children and adults can get very sick from the flu and spread it to family and friends.
So remember to get your vaccination as soon as possible and get flu safe!
