The NHS in south east Essex is reminding people to be on the lookout for invitations to get their flu jab if they’re in the ‘at-risk’ groups.
The invitation letters, from our local GPs, are being sent to adults aged over 65; those with long-term health conditions such as severe asthma or heart disease; carers; pregnant women; children aged two to eight and other at-risk groups.
Every year, hundreds of thousands of people see their GP with flu-like symptoms and tens of thousands are hospitalised because of flu. In south east Essex 115,000 in at-risk groups are eligible for a free flu vaccination. Last year only 57% of the eligible individuals went for their vaccination.
