With flu season now upon us, Thurrock’s public health team and the Clinical Commissioning Group are working together to fight the threat of flu by encouraging specific groups of people to get their flu vaccine. The message is, it’s not too late!
The groups of people being encouraged in particular are pregnant women, parents of young children, those under 65 with long-term conditions like asthma, diabetes or heart disease. Carers are also eligible to be vaccinated.
Last year Thurrock’s eligible population were under vaccinated, putting them at risk of serious health problems due to the flu. Flu can even be fatal.
