Flu Jab

Posted on 9th Sep 2020

It's that time of year again!
Due to the recent crisis surrounding the coronavirus, flu jabs have never been more important to have. In order to protect the NHS during the already busy winters, it's vital to ensure that we can all be as healthy as we can. A lot of people believe that flu jabs make them ill, but it's rather the opposite. A 2014 study shows that a vaccine reduces the risk of flu-related hospital admissions by 74%. Additionally, it's not only proven to help reduce risk of infection within one person, but others too. Stopping the spread of the flu can be life-saving, especially when it comes to elderly lives. 
The risk of serious illness from the flu, and consequent hospitilisation of such, is extremely high in those of the age of 65 and above as they are more likely to have underlying health conditions. As such, the government have made it free of charge for those above the age of 65 to have a vaccine free of charge. In order to protect yourself and others from the flu this winter, and help the NHS, we strongly believe that getting a flu vaccine is extremely important!

The Care Company helps to enable individuals to get their flu vaccine within their own home by a medical proffesional, such as their GP. We understand the difficulties surrounding organising an appointment, especially during these strange times and as such, we can help organise this should the client feel the need.
Flu jabs are vital to helping individuals manage their own wellbeing, and we can help assist all of our clients with that. Everybody aged over 65 can access a flu jab for free from a local pharmacy or GP. 
Protect yourself and others and stay well this winter.
