Jo has encouraged local people to get their flu vaccine this winter.
Jo attended the parliamentary flu vaccine clinic to get her jab and find out about the Department of Health’s provision of free seasonal flu vaccines to at risk groups, including those aged 65 of over and sufferers of chronic respiratory disease.
Commenting, Jo said:
“The seasonal flu vaccination is vital to help protect those people who are more susceptible to serious complications from flu. With winter setting in, now is the time to go and get your annual flu jab to avoid what can sometimes be a nasty and debilitating illness.
“I would encourage East Dunbartonshire residents who are at greater risk from flu to go and visit their local doctor’s surgery for more details.”
