1000 flu jab challenge!

We all come to work as we have strong values of being compassionate and caring. That’s why we get our flu jabs too, we want to ensure we are looking after our patients and our colleagues by preventing the winter flu spreading.

This year we are anticipating a difficult winter with the circulating flu strains so want to ensure we are as prepared as possible and you all have the chance to be vaccinated as early as possible.

We have therefore set out our 1000 flu jab challenge for community week. We want you all to be safe so you can keep our patients safe too. We’ve therefore put on more clinics than ever before. We even have a prize draw for you and any colleague you bring that didn’t get vaccinated last year!

Check out the available clinics here and either pre-book your time slot or drop in when it suits. Don’t forget you can also drop in at MIUs across the trust, go to your GP, claim back for pharmacy jabs or find your nearest peer vaccinator who will be vaccinating in the teams.

If you have any questions or comments do get in touch with us at dchst.flu@nhs.net

Let’s make this DCHS’s safest winter!
