Wigan, United Kingdom (PressExposure) January 16, 2012 -- Pall Mall Medical, a private healthcare facility based in Manchester, is offering the flu vaccination to people outside the 'high risk' groups.
Flu can be a serious illness and vaccinations are essential to ensure optimum health. The NHS offers a flu vaccination, but only to people in 'high risk groups' or those over the age of 65. However, Pall Mall Medical is now providing the vaccination to people outside these groups.
Since opening in 2011, Pall Mall Medical has continued to expand the realm of services they offer. With convenient appointments, direct access to consultants and state of the art diagnostics, they are frequently registering new clients.
Stephanie Byrom, CEO of Pall Mall Medical, commented: "The flu vaccine is available for anyone who doesn't qualify for the vaccination on the NHS. It will be administered by one our GPs at our clinic in the heart of Manchester on King Street. With the flu season approaching, it's a fantastic offer that people should take advantage of to protect themselves against the flu virus, which can seriously affect your health and business."
The Chief Medical Officer, Professor Dame Sally Davies, is reminding everyone who is eligible to have the flu vaccine. As the influenza season gets closer, it's important that vulnerable people are protected as early as possible because they run the greatest risk of complications from flu; such as pneumonia and bronchitis.
As the CMO says: "Flu can kill - and it can be particularly dangerous for people in high risk groups. They are on average 11 times more likely to die from flu than a healthy person is."
Pall Mall Medical has enough vaccines to vaccinate those at risk and those who are not. Pall Mall Medical staff do all they can to actively contact their patients and encourage them to book an appointment for a flu vaccination as soon as possible.
