Parental Control Ep 97: Dr Ellie Cannon Talks Winter Bugs, Covid, Chickenpox Vaccines And How To Cope With Croup

Ellie Thompson welcomes NHS GP and author Dr. Ellie Cannon to the show to talk about this year’s winter health concerns and their impact on our children. Dr. Ellie dives into the latest on Covid this winter, the perks of the flu vaccine for kids, the scoop on the chickenpox vaccine, as well as some easy tips for dealing with croup.

Dr Ellie is supporting NHS England’s latest campaign which is raising awareness of changes to the way you access help and receive the care you need from your GP practice. In addition to GPs, many GP practices have a range of other health professionals who can help you, including nurses, physiotherapists, clinical pharmacists, mental health practitioners, paramedics, social prescribers, and health and wellbeing coaches.
