Nuffield Health Help York City Get Ready For The Winter Season!

26th November 2019

If you want help to stay healthy this winter and prevent the spread of flu among family, friends and work colleagues, a flu jab is a good first step.

Flu is contagious and it can be passed through coughing, sneezing or by touching contaminated surfaces. Most flu outbreaks usually happen in late autumn or winter, and, for most people, it's an unpleasant but not a life-threatening condition.

As a result, as part of a growing partnership, the York City squad took their chance to have their flu jabs thanks to Nuffield Health’s York Hospital on Haxby Road.

Grateful for the support, York City midfielder Paddy McLaughlin said: “We really appreciate Nuffield Health inviting the squad down for flu vaccinations. It is important that the players and coaching staff stay fit and healthy throughout the winter months, especially with such a hectic schedule – we couldn’t have been better looked after!”

Richard Vanson, Sales and Services Manager at Nuffield Health welcomed the players, commenting; “It is great to be able to support York City FC with their flu vaccinations and keep them going through the winter months into the spring and hopefully promotion!”

“Some of the players will be familiar with the hospital from surgical and diagnostic procedures, but I think it is great that as a not-for-profit organisation we reinvest all of our surplus back into the business which allows us to do this type of thing, so for us it is great to partner up with York City FC and do our bit for the community’s football team.”

As part of the growing partnership between the two organisations, both are championing flu vaccinations in the community – flu can be extremely serious for those more at risk of developing complications and getting vaccinated is the best protection.
