It’s getting to the time of year where some Ruddington residents might be thinking about getting the flu vaccine. You can get these from your GP, or Evans Pharmacy in the village also offers the service at a time to suit you.
Flu is a viral respiratory infection that’s easily spread from person to person. Anyone can catch it and pass on to others, so getting a flu jab is a good way to protect yourself and those around you.
If you’re over 65 or an adult with a long-term health condition (such as asthma) you can get your vaccine on the NHS. If you’re not in one of the “at risk” groups but would still like to have the vaccination, that’s fine. You can be treated at the pharmacy on a private basis.
Visit www.evanspharmacy.com and find Ruddington in the drop-down “Pharmacies” men if you’d like to book your vaccination appointment online, or call in to the pharmacy.
