It’s that time of year again, flu season!
The NHS recommends that people with long term health conditions, including cystinosis, have a flu vacinne. Patients who have had a transplant are at increased risk of catching flu due to their weakened immune system.
In healthy people flu will usually clear up within a weak. But, people with existing health issues are more likely to have serious complications of flu.
Anyone eligible for a flu vacinne should contact their GP. Children aged two and older may be offered a nasal spray instead of an injection, as this is more effective and needle free.
