With the winter months fast approaching and the cold weather creeping in, it is even more important to look after yourself. Cold weather can be seriously bad for your health, therefore being cautious and protecting yourself from these illnesses is crucial. If you start to feel unwell, even if it's a cough or a cold, don't wait until it gets more serious. Seek advice from your pharmacist.
Don’t forget, you are eligible for the free flu vaccine if you are pregnant, are aged 65 years or over, have a long term health condition, or are a carer. Children aged 2 or 3 years are also eligible. Ask your GP, pharmacist or midwife about the free flu vaccine.
