Let’s face up to flu!

Posted: 16/10/18

We have had a fantastic start to the campaign and so far have vaccinated 21.42% of our frontline staff. Thank you to everyone who has already had their vaccination, you are helping us face up to flu. Vaccination helps protect you, your family and your patients.

As well as the clinics our flu trailer is back on the road.

Wednesday 17 October 9.30am – 3.30pm Walkergate Park Hospital
Friday 19 October 9.30am – 3.30pm Northgate Hospital
Monday 22 October 9.30am – 3.30pm St George’s Park
Wednesday 24 October 9.30am – 3.30pm St Nicholas Hospital
Friday 26 October 9.30am – 3.30pm Monkwearmouth Hospital

With over 200 trained peer vaccinators it’s never been easier to protect yourself. A full list of trained staff is available here. Staff work a variety of shift patterns so there will be a lot of choice and opportunity to receive your vaccine.

If there is a particular reason why you’ve had your vaccine, perhaps you or a member of your family or one of your patients is particularly vulnerable and at risk from flu then we’d love to hear from you. You can email us at Communications@ntw.nhs.uk and you can follow Matron Carole on twitter @matroncarole or her Facebook page at Matron Carole Flufighter.

Help us beat the bug.
