In addition to the COVID-19 vaccine, it’s also important to get a flu vaccine. Fortunately, the flu vaccine is available at a range of community pharmacies. This makes it easy for you to get vaccinated without having to visit your GP. To find a pharmacy near you that offers the flu vaccine, visit the NHS website.
It’s important to remember that getting vaccinated not only protects you but also those around you, especially those who are vulnerable. As a carer, it’s important to take every precaution to ensure the health and safety of those under your care. By getting vaccinated, you’re doing your part in preventing the spread of COVID-19 and the flu.
