Flu restrictions removed at Withybush Hospital

First published in News

Restrictions on visiting following an outbreak of flu at Withybush Hospital in Haverfordwest have been lifted. Hywel Dda Health Board thanked patients and the public for their understanding and patience during the time that the restrictions were in place.

The LHB is now urging more people to get jabbed to ensure they are protected against flu this winter.

Polly Leett, immunisation coordinator for Hywel Dda Health Board, said: “The flu vaccine changes every year so even if you had a jab last year, you will need to get another this year to stay safe.

“It’s a common misconception that you can catch the flu from having a flu jab. Because the vaccine is not live, it will not make you ill. The jab will mean you and your family have the best chances of not getting the flu virus and you stay healthy this winter.”

For more information on where to get your flu jab speak to your GP surgery or visit www.nhsdirect.wales.nhs.uk/doityourself for further information.
