In response to the rising spread of influenza throughout the UK we have added on some extra appointments for patients who are still eligible to come in for a flu jag. The so called 'Aussie' flu is one of the strains of influenza that this years flu jag helps defend against. We would would strongly advise all patients over 65 and those at particular risk from flu to give us a call and get booked in. Included in the 'at risk' categories are all carers and pregnant women.
All kids who missed the vaccine at school can still get it, but it will be an injection as opposed to the nasal spray.
The link below give a very good run down of the situation.
As always, please give us a call if you have any concerns
We are seeing a lot of conjunctivitis around at the moment in our wee folks - treatment is not usually required and unless the child is particularly unwell. The attached webpage gives excellent advice for parents / carers. As always, give us a call and ask for telephone advice from the GP if you are concerned.
National Shortage - Hep A and B vaccine.
There is currently a national shortage of both Hep A and Hep B vaccines - this can affect some patients travelling to certain areas. For more info please see the Travel Clinic part of the website.
