STAFF at Northern Lincolnshire and Goole Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust are taking part in a ‘Flu Fighter’ campaign to protect themselves and patients by getting the flu jab.

Vaccination teams are currently out and about on wards and departments, including at Scunthorpe General Hospital, offering people to chance of having their jab.

A series of clinics are also being run by the Occupational Health Department, providing staff with an opportunity to get their vaccination.

It is available to all workers unless they fall within one of the Department of Health ‘risk categories’, which includes people with long term heath conditions.
