This morning I visited S.G. Barai Pharmacy on Erskine Road with the Minister for Primary Care and Patient Safety, Maria Caulfield.
I was delighted that Minister Caulfield was attending to receive her flu jab after I received both doses of the Coronavirus vaccine earlier this year. As the weather gets colder we may become more vulnerable to respiratory viruses, as well as the Coronavirus. That is why it's more important than ever for residents to help protect themselves against the flu.
If you're 50 years or over, getting your free flu vaccination is a very important way to help protect your health this winter. You can find out more information about the flu on Age UK's website here.
You can also find out more information about where you can get your Coronavirus vaccine (and booster vaccine) on the NHS website here.
Thank you again to Minister Caulfield for visiting our wonderful community pharmacies!
