Given the impact of Covid-19 on the most vulnerable in society, it is imperative that we do all that we can to reduce the impact of seasonal flu on those most at risk.
Silverline Care will be working with the local authorities and participating in their flu immunisation programme this winter to protect our residents and staff, prevent ill health in the population and minimise further impact on the NHS and social care services and we are encouraging family members to consider uptake of the flu vaccination for their loved ones this year.
More information can be found here: https://www.gov.uk/government/collections/annual-flu-programme
and https://www.nhsinform.scot/flu (Scotland).
If you have any further questions regarding a the flu jab in relation to a resident in our care, please do not hesitate to contact us via the website or call the home directly.
