Understanding the Importance of Flu Vaccination in Winter
Protect yourself from the flu this winter with a flu vaccine. Reduce the risk of complications and strengthen your immune system against influenza. Don’t let the flu disrupt your plans, get vaccinated and stay healthy.
How the NHS Flu Vaccine Works to Protect You
The flu vaccine stimulates your body’s immune system to produce antibodies against the flu virus, helping you recognize and fight it. It contains inactivated flu viruses that can’t cause the flu. Getting vaccinated primes your immune system for a quick response to the flu virus, providing the best protection. Flu vaccines target the main types of flu viruses circulating each season.
Who Should Get the Flu Vaccine?
Flu vaccination is recommended for everyone aged six months and older, especially those with chronic health conditions and weakened immune systems. Frontline healthcare workers and pregnant women should also get vaccinated to protect themselves and others.
How to Get Your Flu Vaccine?
You don’t need to go to your GP surgery to get flu vaccinations. To get your flu vaccine, you have a few options. One option is to visit your local pharmacy, where trained pharmacists can administer the vaccine. Another option is to book a flu vaccine appointment through the Charac app. It’s important to get vaccinated early in the flu season for maximum protection. Additionally, you may be eligible for a free flu vaccine through the NHS.
Ensuring Adequate Prescription Medication through Winter
To ensure you have an adequate supply of prescription medication for winter, plan ahead and contact your GP or pharmacist to order your prescription in advance.
