Patients registered with East Norfolk Medical Practice in Great Yarmouth are being invited to protect themselves and their families by having the flu jab at a walk-in clinic at Newtown Surgery on Saturday between 8am to noon
Everyone who is in an 'at risk' group and eligible for the jab can drop in during the sessions. This includes pregnant women, people aged over 65, frontline health workers and people suffering from a variety of long-term conditions.
The vaccine changes every year to reflect the most dominant strains of flu currently in circulation, which means that even people who had a jab last winter should make sure they do so again this year.
Stephanie Davies, nurse manager with the practice, said: 'We have arranged these walk-in clinics to make it as easy as possible for our patients to have the flu jab. Flu can be a very serious illness. The best way to protect yourself, and your family, is to have the vaccine.
'We would encourage anyone who would like the jab to drop in to one of the sessions and take the chance to get protected. Pre-booked appointments can also be arranged via our reception teams.'
