CORONAVIRUS
Latest Advice
Symptoms
The most common symptoms of coronavirus (COVID-19) are recent onset of:
  • New continuous cough and/or
  • High temperature
  • loss or change to your sense of smell or taste  

For most people, coronavirus (COVID-19) will be a mild illness If you have coronavirus symptoms:
  • Do not go to a GP surgery, pharmacy or hospital
  • You do not need to contact 111 to tell them you're staying at home
  • Testing for coronavirus is not needed if you're staying at home
  • Plan ahead and ask others for help to ensure that you can successfully stay at home and consider what can be done for vulnerable people in the household
  • Ask your employer, friends and family to help you to get the things you need to stay at home
  • Wash your hands regularly for 20 seconds, each time using soap and water, or use hand sanitiser
  • If you feel you cannot cope with your symptoms at home, or your condition gets worse, or your symptoms do not get better after 7 days, then use the NHS 111 online coronavirus service. If you do not have internet access, call NHS 111. For a medical emergency dial 999
  • Visit NHS 111 Online for more information

Stay at Home
  • If you live alone and you have symptoms of coronavirus illness (COVID-19), however mild, stay at home for 7 days from when your symptoms started. (See ending isolation section below for more information)
  • If you live with others and you or one of them have symptoms of coronavirus, then all household members must stay at home and not leave the house for 14 days. The 14-day period starts from the day when the first person in the house became ill
  • It is likely that people living within a household will infect each other or be infected already. Staying at home for 14 days will greatly reduce the overall amount of infection the household could pass on to others in the community
  • For anyone in the household who starts displaying symptoms, they need to stay at home for 7 days from when the symptoms appeared, regardless of what day they are on in the original 14 day isolation period. (See ending isolation section below for more information
  • If you can, move any vulnerable individuals (such as the elderly and those with underlying health conditions) out of your home, to stay with friends or family for the duration of the home isolation period
  • If you cannot move vulnerable people out of your home, stay away from them as much as possible

Seasonal Flu Vaccination Service
Lifestyle Pharmacy's private seasonal Flu vaccination service is now running and is the ideal way to protect yourself and your family this winter. Injections are available for £10 for those aged 9 and over and a new nasal spray influenza vaccine (Fluenz Tetra®) is now available for children and young people aged 5 to 17 and priced at £30. Call 01225 465576 to book an appointment. New for 2015, we can now provide NHS-funded vaccinations to those over 18 in at risk categories, including Asthma, Diabetes and many others. Read on to find out more… What is Influenza (flu)? Flu is an infectious viral illness that typically affects people in the winter months. It is spread by coughing and sneezing and is characterised by a range of symptoms. Flu can causea sudden high temperature, headache and general aches and pains, tiredness and asore throat. Youcanalso lose your appetite, feel nauseous and havea cough. Flu symptoms can make you feel so exhausted and unwell that you haveto stay in bed and restuntil you feelbetter. Find out more about seasonal flu here. It is generally more troublesome than a common cold and the after effects can last much longer, leaving sufferers feeling drained and fatigued for weeks. How does vaccination reduce the risk of catching Flu? A seasonal flu vaccination stimulates the immune system to produce antibodies, so that the immune response is much quicker when the immune system is exposed to the virus again. It’s not possible to catch a cold or the flu from a vaccine, although it can leave people feeling like they have mild ‘flu-like’ symptoms for a day or so after vaccination. Is vaccination available for free on the NHS? If you or a member of your family are in an at risk group you may be entitled to a seasonal flu vaccination for free on the NHS, these include: Those aged 65 or over Those with underlying long-term health problems (such as respiratory illness or heart problems) Children and adults with weakened immune systems Pregnant women In addition, all children aged up to the age of 5 will be given a flu vaccination eitther by injection or nasal spray and those in at-risk groups up to the age of 18 will also be offered a vaccination. What about those not eligible for free vaccination on the NHS? The Lifestyle Pharmacy seasonal flu vaccination service is a available to those who are ineligible for the NHS service or simply want a more convenient appointment time and/or location. Under our service, anyone aged 9 and over can be vaccinated by injection unless they are: Allergic to eggs, latex or any of the vaccine constituents Taking Warfarin Undergoing chemotherapy Currently suffering from liver disease, kidney disease, immunodeficieny disorder or bleeding disorder Currently suffering from an acute viral illness with a temperature (mild colds/sore throats are ok) Pregnant or Breastfeeding Can under 9’s receive a vaccination? This year we have introduced a private seasonal flu nasal spray vaccination service for children and young people aged 5 to 17. It is administered as a single dose for those aged 9 and over or for children under 9 who have had a previous seasonal flu vaccination. Children under 9 who have never had a flu vaccination will require 2 doses, 4 weeks apart. Parent/guardian consent and presence is required for all children under 16. We regret that children under 9 are not currently eligible for vaccination by injection under our service. How much does the service cost? Vaccination by injection is £10. Vaccination for children and young people by Fluenz Tetra® nasal spray is £30 per dose. Who administers the vaccination? Both the injection and nasal spray vaccination are administered in the private consultation room by specially-trained and experienced Pharmacists. Are there any side effects? Like all medicines, both the injection and nasal spray vaccinations can have side effects but not everyone will get them. Side effects are generally mild and gone within 48 hours. Common injection side effects include soreness, redness and muscular ache at the injection site. The nasal spray may cause a runny or stuffy nose, reduced appetite and weakness. Both routes of administration can result in short-term muscular aches and ‘flu-like’ symptoms. Serious allergic reactions are very rare (1 in 1,000,000) but just in case, Pharmacists undertake specialist anaphylaxis training to deal with emergencies. Is more information available? Speak to a member of the team on 01225 465576 to book an appointment for you or your child. Further info about the flu vaccination is available here from NHS Choices.
