It's Flu Season so make sure you get protected. The Tredegar Practice is giving flu vaccinations now. 

How do I get my flu vaccine at the practice?

Call us on 020 8980 1822 and we will book you an appointment for the flu vaccine. If you already have an appointment for something else then you don't need to book a separate flu vaccine appointment as the doctor or nurse will do it at the same time. Just make sure you remind them! However don't put off getting the jab if the appointment isn't soon.

Who can have the flu jab?

  • Little Squirts!
    Children aged 2 and 3 can have the flu spray here at the surgery. Children in Reception and Years 1, 2 and 3 can also have it here if they missed at school. The nasal flu spray is quick and it doesn't hurt!

  • Pregnant women
    The flu vaccine is safe in any stage of pregnancy. The flu can be very serious in pregnancy. The flu jab protects you and your baby even after he or she is born!
  • Long term conditions
    People of all ages with long term conditions such as asthma, diabetes and HIV can get really ill from the flu. You should still get the flu jab even if you feel well for most of the year.
  • Over 65 years old
    Older people are more likely to get pneumonia or be admitted to hospital if they catch the flu. That's why we offer it to people over 65 every year even if they're fit and well.

Adults can also get the flu jab at the pharmacy - make sure you ask them to let us know!
