Stephen McPartland MP had his seasonal flu vaccination last week. He is one of many people living in Stevenage who are in the "at risk" groups and doctors recommend get this season’s flu vaccine.
Stephen said, “The seasonal flu vaccination is important to help protect those people who are more susceptible to serious complications or even death from flu. I would urge all those that are over the age of 65 or are in one of the ‘at risk’ groups to visit their surgeries and get vaccinated. Flu can be a pretty nasty and debilitating illness and remains a serious threat, particularly for those aged over 65 or those of any age with medical conditions that put them at risk of developing serious complications from influenza infection."
