Help protect your patients and everyone around you....

We’d hate to think that we had contributed to making someone ill, especially over Christmas. However that could be the reality if we don’t get our flu jabs.

Some people decline the jabs as they feel they are fit and well so don’t require vaccinating. The reality is that we all require a vaccination to protect ourselves and, crucially, our patients and families.

Up to 77% of people carrying flu may never know they are doing so. If you haven’t been vaccinated you could risk making the vulnerable patients you work so hard to keep well critically ill this Christmas.

The number 1 way to protect them is to get your flu jab. It’s free and we are working hard to make it as convenient as possible for you.
