Members of the public can now receive this year’s seasonal flu vaccination service from pharmacists in Offaly.

The service is available free of charge from pharmacists to those in an at risk group who hold a medical card. At risk groups include elderly people, pregnant women and people with chronic illnesses.

Rory O’Donnell, President of the Irish Pharmacy Union said, “Flu is an extremely contagious respiratory illness and can be serious, even fatal, particularly for patients with serious health conditions such as asthma, heart disease, diabetes or a weakened immune system.

We are encouraging as many people as possible to visit a pharmacist and get vaccinated.”

The Flu Season lasts from October to April.
