Free immunisation programme
ERS Medical is providing complimentary on-site flu vaccinations to staff at Bright Skies Nursery based in North Leeds and parents of children who attend the nursery.
The strain of winter brings with it illnesses such as the flu, which not only affects the young, elderly, and vulnerable groups of people, but also puts increasing pressures on health and care staff. The free vaccination programme by ERS Medical will be provided to Bright Skies Nursery to help fight against catching the flu virus. Furthermore, as A&E departments are due to face increased pressures this winter it is imperative for us to protect ourselves wherever possible.
Andrea, Nursery Head at Bright Skies Nursery commented: “I am really pleased to be working alongside ERS in offering the vaccination to staff and parents and also to increase awareness of the importance of protecting against this illness. In a nursery environment we find that many of our parents and children suffer each winter and in addition to the illness and pressure on hospitals, it also puts further pressure on parents who are balancing careers and child-rearing. I am fully in agreement with the phrase ‘prevention is better than cure’.”
