The benefits of receiving the flu vaccination jab
Did you know that the flu vaccination has been known to prevent tens of thousands of hospitalisations every year? Receiving the flu jab can not only help people from getting ill with the flu, but it can also help reduce the severity of the symptoms if you do still catch the virus.
The common flu is an illness caused by the influenza virus that can affect the nose, throat and lungs. It can have varying degrees of seriousness and can effect different patients in different ways. It can be of particular concern in older and more vulnerable patients and the flu vaccination is recommended and even offered for free for many people.
