It's imperative that all GP locums receive a flu vaccine at the earliest opportunity to prevent us acting as an unsuspecting viral vectors as we move from practice to practice, typically working in 30 different practices a year.

As GP locums, we are arguably at our most needed during flu season, so it's in everyone's interest that we all get vaccinated.

Since 2016, it's also in a practices interest, since NHS England are incentivising practices to vaccinate 75% of all their front line staff.

Fortunately, employing surgeries are often fairly obliging when it comes to vaccinating ocus, and it really doesn't cost that much to get a shot from local chemist. But if you're minded to get it for, this download, even if it doesn't get you the money, will at least raise this as an issue.
