Your preparation time is over. The role play will now last for about 5 minutes. Don’t worry if I stop you when the time is up. Can you start the role play, please?

Hello Good morning, I’m Nurse Narso Andrew and I’ll be attending you today. How can I assist you?


Hi Good morning nurse Andrew. I’m here to enquire about the flu vaccination. I heard it’s important to get it every year.

That’s right. The flu vaccination can help protect you from getting sick with the flu virus, which can cause serious complications and even death. It can also reduce the spread of the virus to others. I appreciate your willingness to take the flu vaccination.


Thank you Nurse andrew. I want to stay healthy and prevent others from getting sick too.

That’s very considerate of you. Now before we proceed with the vaccination, I need to collect some information from you. What is your full name and date of birth?


My name is Patience patricia. I was born on the 15th of June, 1975.

Thank you patricia. Are you currently taking any medications?


No, I’m not on any long term medication.

Okay and how are you feeling today?


Well, actually I do have a bit of a cold and a slight fever. I have been feeling chilly and tired for the past few days.

I’m sorry to hear that. It sounds like you may have a viral infection. Have you taken any medication for your symptoms?


No I haven’t. I thought it would go away on its own.

Well in that case, I would recommend that you take some over-the-counter medication to help relieve your symptoms. You can take paracetamol for your fever and pain, and an antihistamine for your runny nose and sneezing. Make sure you follow the dosage instructions on the label and drink plenty of fluids.


Thank you for the advice Nurse. How often should I take these medications?

You can take paracetamol every 4 to 6 hours as needed, but not more than four times a day. You can take an antihistamine once or twice a day depending on the strength of the tablet.


Okay I understand. And when can I get the flu vaccination?

Well unfortunately, due to your current illness it’s advisable to delay the flu vaccination by two weeks. This is because your immune system may not respond well to the vaccine if you are already sick. There is also a risk of side effects or adverse reactions if you get vaccinated while having a fever.


Oh no, Does that mean I’m more likely to catch the flu in these two weeks?

Not necessarily. The flu vaccine is not 100% effective in preventing the flu, but it can reduce the severity and duration of the illness. If you do get infected,  there are some general tips that you can follow to stay healthy during the flu season. For example, regularly washing your hands with soap and water, or using an alcohol based hand sanitizer can prevent virus transmission from contaminated surfaces.

Avoid touching your face especially your eyes, nose and mouth reduces the risk of infection. Ensure Proper cough and sneeze etiquette by covering your mouth and nose with a tissue or your elbow. Dispose of used tissues in a bin and wash your hands afterwards. Limit close contact with individuals displaying flu like symptoms, and stay home if you fall ill to prevent further transmission.

Maintaining a balanced diet. Staying well-hydrated. Getting adequate sleep and engaging in regular exercise can boost your immune system. These practices combined with vaccination significantly reduce your susceptibility to the flu, and enhance overall well-being during the flu season.


Thank you for the tips nurse. They are very helpful.

You’re welcome patricia. I hope you feel better soon.


Thank you very much.

Now let’s schedule a follow up appointment for your flu vaccination in two weeks time. How about the first Monday of next month?


That sounds fine to me.

All right then. I’ll book that for you. Please remember to bring your ID card, and any relevant medical records with you when you come for your appointment.


Okay nurse I will.

Is there anything else I can help you with today?


No, that’s all for now. Thank you for your assistance Nurse.

You’re very welcome Patricia. It was nice talking to you today. Take care and see you soon.


Thank you nurse, Bye for now. That is the end of your old speaking role play. All the best.

Thank you.
