Flu season is here . . . .

Protect yourself this season 

 

 

Whats is the flu? 

 

Flu is contagious and it can be passed through coughing, sneezing or by touching infected surfaces or people. Most flu outbreaks usually happen in late autumn or winter, and, for most people, it's an unpleasant but not a life-threatening condition.

 

 

What are the symptoms?

  • a high temperature

  • sweating, feeling feverish/chills

  • a headache 

  • muscle and tiredness

  • a sore throat 

  • a dry, chesty cough 

  • loss of appetite 

 

Do I need the flu jab? 

 

Flu can be unpleasant, but if you are otherwise healthy it will usually clear up on its own in a week 

 

However the flu can be more severe in certain people: 

  • anyone aged 65 and over

  • pregnant women

  • children and adults with an underlying health condition (such as long-term heart or respiratory disease)

  • children and adults with weakened immune system

 

Where can I get the flu jab? 

  • your GP surgery  

  • local pharmacy offering the service 

  • your midwifery service if they offer it for pregnant women
