Flu and COVID-19 Winter 2023

Flu

Flu occurs every year, usually in the winter, which is why it’s sometimes called seasonal flu. It’s a highly infectious disease with symptoms that come on very quickly. To find out more about the symptoms of flu visit the NHS website.

Flu vaccination: who should have it this winter and why?

The flu vaccine provides the best protection available against a virus that can cause severe illness.

If you are eligible for flu vaccination, you need to be vaccinated every year as the antibodies that protect you from flu decline over time, and flu strains change from year to year. It can take up to two weeks for your immunity to build up fully after you have had your flu vaccine. NHS Flu vaccine.

Where can you get the flu jab in Worcestershire?

To find a pharmacy that offers the flu jab visit NHS flu vaccine

 

Coronavirus (COVID-19)

Who should have it and why?

Booster doses are an important part of protecting yourself from COVID-19 if you are at higher risk from severe COVID-19. Booster doses help increase your protection from becoming seriously ill or needing to go to hospital if you catch COVID-19.

Where can you get the COVID-19 booster vaccination

You can visit this website to find out where you can get the covid booster vaccination locally to you:

Parish Council Drop-In Surgeries

Warndon Parish Council drop-in surgeries will be held at the Lyppard Hub, on the last Monday of each month from 6pm – 7pm, for residents to meet with a Parish Councillor to raise any matters especially those pertaining to a particular location or site.

This will enable more detailed discussion and fact-finding than is possible at a Parish Council meeting; if the issue is of wider interest or requires a decision by the Parish Council it will be raised at a subsequent Parish Council meeting.

The next surgeries will be held on: 

Monday 26 February 2024

Monday 26 March 2024 

 

We look forward to helping to signpost or resolve your concerns.

 

Residents are also welcome to attend the monthly Parish Council meetings on the first Monday of the month, also held at the Lyppard Hub at 7p.m.

 

The Here2Help Community Services Directory

In September 2021, Here2Help launched its Community Services Directory as part of its wider service to help residents search for a range of services and support offered by charities, community groups, businesses, public sector groups and other organisations in their local area and across the whole of Worcestershire. These services include mental health and wellbeing, financial advice, assistance and supplies, volunteering opportunities, recreation activities and much more.

Since its launch in September, over 275 organisations have signed up to offer support and services to Worcestershire residents. The Here2Help team have also been out visiting various libraries in the County to talk to residents about the Here2Help Service and the Community Services Directory.

Do you know any local organisations that may be interested in registering their service on the Here2Help Community Services Directory? More information can be found by visiting http://www.worcestershire.gov.uk/here2help
