Diabetes patients urged to take up flu jab

NHS_logoPeople with diabetes are being urged to get their free flu jab this winter.

The NHS is warning that only a third of people with the condition have claimed their injection.

Diabetes patients find it harder to cope with the flu virus and can suffer serious complications.

Cathy Beresford, diabetes specialist nurse at Berkshire Healthcare NHS Foundation Trust, said: "The flu jab is completely safe and cannot give you flu.

"If you haven’t got round to having your flu jab yet, now is the best time to get it done, before flu starts to spread."

Visit your GP to book a jab.
