Those who have been diagnosed with diabetes are recommended to have a flu jab each year. Influenza infection can cause big problems for diabetics, such as leading to pneomonia or causing further damage to organs like the kidneys. Flu vaccinations are available from us without appointment, as well as your GP and many other pharmacies too. So stay well this winter and get the jab!
