Chris Skidmore, MP for Kingswood and vice chair of the Conservative Party, invited local Bristol Ellacombe Pharmacy, to his community Health and Wellbeing day in a bid to drive flu vaccination take-up.
The annual event provides opportunities for people to access information about their individual needs from local organisations and charities.
Skidmore commented: “As the local MP I want to make sure all residents have access to essential health services and support within our community.
"I was delighted that local people had the chance to learn more about the winter flu jab campaign at my recent Wellbeing Fair, and that so many signed up to receive this vital vaccination at our amazing local community health provider.”
Lead pharmacist at Ellacombe Pharmacy Jess Mei Liau-Williams added: “Studies have shown that the flu jab does work.
"Mr Skidmore, just as in previous years, continues to champion our work to make sure we reach as many people as possible. He has always been open to our ideas of ways community pharmacy can provide easily accessible health care. We are grateful for his support.”
