The Mayor of Sandwell, Dr Ann Jaron and our CCG are calling on thousands of patients to get vaccinated as flu cases continue to rise across the country. The rate of influenza like illness (ILI) has increased in recent weeks and is above threshold levels for the first time this flu season.
Over 115,000 people in Sandwell and West Birmingham remain at risk of flu this Christmas because they haven’t had their flu vaccination, new figures have revealed.
With Christmas and New Year fast approaching GPs across the Black Country and West Birmingham are reminding people to plan ahead by stocking up their medicine cabinets and ordering repeat prescriptions if needed.
