The seasonal flu is spread in small droplets of saliva that are coughed or sneezed into the air by people infected with the flu.
It can also spread by touching common surfaces such as a door handle with unwashed hands. Certain people are more ‘at risk’ if they contract seasonal flu and should be vaccinated annually, including the elderly and those with a long term illness.
We offer a seasonal flu vaccine service to adults in Rathnew Pharmacy (children must go to their G.P.) .
The vaccine is administered by one of our trained pharmacists in our private consultation room.
