  • If you live with others and you or one of them have symptoms of coronavirus, then all household members must stay at home and not leave the house for 14 days. The 14-day period starts from the day when the first person in the house became ill
  • It is likely that people living within a household will infect each other or be infected already. Staying at home for 14 days will greatly reduce the overall amount of infection the household could pass on to others in the community

Flu season approaching!

We're barely past the summer holidays and we're already hitting you with the F-word ... Flu that is! Cases of influenza usually start in October and rise to a peak in December & January before tailing off during February and March. Flu is caused by a virus and can make people really ill. Sore throat, fever, aching muscles, blocked nose, cough and lethargy usually mean a sufferer is bed bound for at least a few days while taking plenty of fluids, pain relief and cold remedies to ease the symptoms.

But sometimes flu can lead to complications, the most common of which is pneumonia which can lead to hospital admission. Some people are at an increased risk of the complications of flu and are advised by the NHS to have a flu jab vaccination. This includes anyone over 65 years old, pregnant women, diabetics, people with epilepsy, heart disease or breathing problems such as asthma or COPD. Also those with weakened immune systems (either because of disease or medication) and those who spend their time as an unpaid carer for family or friends. The flu jab is FREE for these people and can be done at our pharmacy in Accrington, no matter where in the country you usually live. So if you're visiting the area and can't get to your doctor, call in from 18th September and we'll get you covered.
