BHIVA message: Seasonal flu vaccination for people with underlying health condit
Posted on: November 23 2012, 03:26 pm

Dear all,
 
Please find attached a letter via BHIVA from the Chief Medical Officer/ Chief Scientific Adviser, Professor Dame Sally Davies regarding the uptake of the seasonal flu vaccination for people with underlying health conditions.

Last year only 54.7% of people with immunosuppression received the flu vaccine. Flu poses an increased risk and it is advised that people who are vulnerable to flu receive the vaccine to prevent more cases of serious illness and death.
Please contact your GP if you havenít got your flu vaccine yet.

Regards,
