You never forget the flu, so don’t forget your flu shot

The flu isn’t like the common cold, it can hit quickly and last for weeks, meaning time off work or school and staying away from family and friends.

The message is simple – you never forget the flu, so don’t forget your flu shot.

To get a flu shot, talk to your GP or see the table below for places in the shire where the flu shot is available.

There are also some simple steps everyone can take to help stop the spread of the flu:

  • Cough or sneeze into your elbow. It stops your hands getting covered in the flu virus and will help stop the spread of the flu.
  • Wash your hands thoroughly with soap and water throughout the day. 
  • And if you are unwell, avoid going to work or school or visiting public places or vulnerable people, like the elderly.
