Lakeside Healthcare at Bourne, Hereward Practice has announced that a record number of its patients, who are most vulnerable to the flu, have decided to protect themselves and those around them by having their flu vaccines.
Cara Garner, Patient Services Team Lead at Hereward Practice, said: "Our top priority is to protect our patients from the flu this autumn and winter. I'm delighted to see many eligible patients choosing to protect themselves and their loved ones by getting vaccinated. I encourage all eligible patients to consider having the vaccine. The flu vaccine provides you with the best defence against the flu and can reduce the severity of your symptoms if you do catch it."
Patients aged 65 and over and patients aged six months to 64 years in clinical risk groups are eligible to receive a flu vaccine, along with all children aged two or three years on 31st August 2023.
We are holding flu vaccination clinics every Saturday in October; patients will also be offered a covid vaccination when attending their appointment. All eligible patients have been invited, however if you do not have an appointment, please contact our reception team on 01778 393 399 to arrange a date and time suitable for you.
