Elderly urged to get winter flu jabs

Friday, November 2, 2012

Meg Munn, Labour MP for Sheffield Heeley, urges the elderly to ensure they have this season’s winter flu vaccination. Those over 65 are encouraged in a new NHS campaign to have the jab.

Last year, 76% of people over 65 and 52.1% of people in other vulnerable groups had the jab in Sheffield. This is higher than the national averages of 74% for the over 65s and 51.6% for other groups.

Meg commented:

“The seasonal flu vaccination is important to help protect those people who are more susceptible to serious complications or even death from flu.

I encourage all those over the age of 65 or in one of the ‘at risk’ groups to visit their surgeries and get vaccinated.”

Dr George Kassianos, of the Royal College of GPs, said:

“Despite the relatively mild flu season last year, people should remember flu remains a serious threat, particularly for those aged over 65 or with medical conditions.”
