If you've had your 'flu jab elsewhere then please tell us. And read on to find out how to have your cake and eat it tomorrow and be a hero like Pudsey

Lisa had her jab at the GP and she made sure OH knew that...

Rehab Assistant Lisa Gray has worked at CHFT for six years - and this year for the first time ever she had her flu jab at her local GP.

 

"I have regular injections meaning my immune system is supressed by 50%. So last time I visited my GP I had the vaccination. I don’t know what I worried about….I was fine.

 

“I knew the vaccination was on offer as I’ve worked here for six years. I’d heard mutterings of ‘it makes you poorly’ or ‘my arm hurt afterwards’ – so I chose not to have it.

 

"But this year was different. Working out in the community means it’s even more important to protect myself and our patients."

 

Lisa made sure she told Occupational Health she'd had the jab - and we're asking all colleagues to tell us, either through the self-declaration button on our seasonal flu pages, though their line manager or by dropping a quick mail to occupational.healthCHT@cht.nhs.uk
