SPALDING’S Munro Medical Centre starts its flu immunisation campaign on Saturday and strongly recommends that patients take up the offer of a free vaccination.
But who is most at risk?
l Anyone aged 65 years and over
l Anyone suffering from heart disease, diabetes, asthma or other respiratory disease, kidney disease or those who are immuno-suppressed due to disease or treatment.
l People living in residential care
l Main carers of the elderly or disabled.
Bookings are now being taken for this Saturday and Saturday, October 13.
The surgery requests that patients attend at their nominated date and time, allowing the practice to have some control on the numbers attending at any one time and thus enable the clinics to run smoothly.
There are no expected problems this year with the supply or delivery of vaccines.
Vaccines will only be available for patients registered at Munro Medical centre.
For more information call into the practice at West Elloe Avenue, Spalding, or visit the website www.munromedicalcentre.co.uk
