IT'S TIME FOR FLU VACCINATIONS AGAIN

Yes it's time for the annual 'flu vaccinations and here are some of the questions that are commonly asked:

Q) What's the difference between a cold and flu?

A) Flu is much more serious than a cold. Your temperature will rise and you will be tired with aching muscles. There is generally a cough or shortness of breath and you won't feel like eating. Complications can arise if you already have an underlying condition such as heart or lung disease or diabetes.

Q) So who is particularly at risk and should be getting vaccinated?

A) If you have any of the following:

Heart disease

Lung disease including asthma

Cancer

You are on steroid medication

Diabetes

Multiple sclerosis

Spleen disorders such as sickle cell disease

Q) Can you get flu from the vaccine?

A) No. the vaccine does not contain any live viruses. sometimes you can get a slight temperature and perhaps a sore arm for a couple of days.

Q) I'm not eligible for a free vaccine at my dostor's can I get it privately?

A) Yes, just call into our pharmacy at 665 clarkston Rd Glasgow G44 3SE or call 0141 637 6000 for more information. It only takes a few minutes.

FLU VACCINATION INFORMATION

This year GGHB is running the flu vaccination service.

If you are over 65, then please wait for your letter from the NHS. That will give you the date, time and venue . (Younger patients e.g. 65 year olds are being vaccinatedfirst) It’s also important to point out that the over 65 vaccine is different from the one given to the under 65’s and also different from the one that may be available on a private basis. The under 65’s at risk e.g. asthmatics those with diabetes etc willeither be done at their GP practice or again at a hub.

If you are under 65 and a carer please contact the pharmacy on 0141 633 3868 or admin@newlifepharmacy.co.uk where you can book in for a vaccine. Unfortunately our private service is at capacity just now and we have a waiting list
