Flu is a common infectious illness spread by coughs and sneezes. It can be very unpleasant, but you'll usually begin to feel better within about a week. However for young children, people aged over 65, people with long-term health conditions and pregnant women flu can be far more serious. It can lead to serious health complications including bronchitis, pneumonia and ear infections. That’s why all children in reception class and school years one, two, three and four will be offered a free nasal flu vaccine at school. Younger children aged two and three, older people and pregnant women can receive their free vaccination at their GP’s surgery. Keep you and your family healthy and well this winter by making sure they get their flu vaccination.
DERBYSHIRE GOLD CARD HOLDERS - IMPORTANT INFORMATION
Gold Card holders are reminded to check validity dates on their cards as thousands are due to expire in the next few months. Gold Card is Derbyshire’s equivalent of the English National Concessionary Travel Scheme (ENCTS) which allows older and people with certain disabilities to travel free-of-charge, off-peak on local buses. It can also be used to get discounts at around 700 local shops and businesses and to borrow items from any Derbyshire or Derby city library. Most Gold Cards are valid for five years. Around 108,000 of the 185,000 cards currently in circulation will need renewing soon - with the majority expiring in September and October 2017. (see poster)
