On Friday 9th October 2020, I had my annual flu jab at my local Manor Pharmacy in Little Eaton. I always like to support local businesses whenever I can and having a local chemist just a couple of minutes’ walk from my home is really convenient.
Did you know that:
- 1 in 5 of the population get flu most years, and this includes healthy people
- Flu is one of the top 3 causes of sickness absence
- Flu is highly contagious, spreads rapidly and anyone can catch it
- The single most effective way to prevent flu spreading is to have the flu vaccination each year
Community pharmacies are a great place to be able to access many health related services without an appointment.
