A FLU vaccination morning will be held at Wargrave Surgery next month.

A FLU vaccination morning will be held at Wargrave Surgery next month.

The surgery wants to vaccinate as many residents as possible as winter approaches.

The elderly and those with chronic diseases are among the groups most at risk.

Vaccinations will take place on Saturday, October 5. Patients with surnames beginning with the letters I to Z will be seen from 8.30am to 10am and those with surnames beginning with A to H from 10.30am to 11.45am.

The surgery recommends that people with liver, kidney, heart or lung diseases should be vaccinated as well as diabetics and those who have suffered a stroke.

Women who are pregnant or have just given birth are also at risk if they catch the flu as their immunity will be lower.

Shingles vaccinations will be available on the same day to people aged 70 to 79 as of September 1, while children aged two or three will be given nasal flu immunisations.

Forms are available to collect from the surgery in Victoria Road. These must be completed and brought on the day.
