Maggie Throup, Member of Parliament for Erewash, is urging more people to take up the offer of the flu vaccine as winter approaches.
Maggie said: “With the combined threat of flu and COVID-19, it is more important that ever for those who are eligible for a flu jab to take up the opportunity to protect themselves and, at the same time, minimise the impact on our NHS.
“I would like to reassure local residents that there is sufficient vaccine for NHS priority cohorts, and flu vaccination deliveries will continue in all areas in England throughout the winter months.
“As well as GP Surgeries, residents can be vaccinated at many pharmacies across Erewash, providing a good choice of location and time for everyone.
“This year, in light of the risk of flu and COVID-19 co-circulating, the Government has an ambitious programme to offer the flu vaccine to over 30 million people, which is the highest number ever.”
