FLU VACCINATIONS: DON'T MISS YOUR FLU VACCINATION! Flu occurs every year, usually in the winter, which is why it’s sometimes called seasonal flu. It’s a highly infectious disease with symptoms that come on very quickly. Colds are much less serious and usually start gradually with a stuffy or runny nose and a sore throat. A bad bout of flu can be much worse than a heavy cold. The most common symptoms of flu are fever, chills, headache, aches and pains in the joints and muscles, and extreme tiredness. Healthy individuals usually recover within two to seven days, but for some the disease can lead to hospitalisation, permanent disability or even death.  Appointments for flu vaccinations for eligible patients (over 65s and those under 65 in relevant at risk groups) are now available to book at Topcliffe Surgery in November. We are also offering Pneumococcal and shingles vaccinations for eligible patients.  Please speak to a member of the reception team or see 'Latest News' for more information.
