THE IMPORTANCE of getting vaccinated against flu will be highlighted at a roadshow event in Worcester next week.

The Flu Safe Roadshow will be rolling into the courtyard of the Guildhall on Friday, November 16, offering shoppers the chance to find out the full facts about flu and whether they are in one of the priority groups to get the jab.

Dr Ash Banerjee, public health consultant for NHS Worcestershire, said: “Flu is not like a bad cold. It can increase the risk of developing more serious illnesses such as pneumonia, or can make existing conditions worse.

"In the worst cases, the flu can result in a stay in hospital, and it can even be a killer. We are running these roadshows to get that message across to as many people as possible, and give them the opportunity to ask questions and find out the facts.”

The roadshow will be outside the Guildhall from 10am to 3pm.
