Patient

Your preparation time is over. You can now start your speaking role play. Don’t worry if I stop you when the time is up.

Good morning, My name is Narso Andrew and I will be your attending nurse here today. How are you doing?

Patient

Good morning Andrew, I’m good, Thank you for asking And you?

I’m great, Thank you. How may I address you?

Patient

My name is Patience Patricia and you can call me patricia.

How may I help you today?

Patient

I am here to get advice on whether to have the seasonal flu vaccination or not.

Alright, I can definitely guide you on your query. First to the question whether it is needed or not, The answer is yes. It is essential to get the seasonal flu vaccination. For better understanding, I can outline the benefits of getting the flu vaccination.

Patient

Okay.

By taking flu vaccination you are getting protection against the flu. Afterwards, the chance of getting the flu is very less. And even if it happens it will be less severe with mild symptoms. Moreover, every vaccination is for community protection. By taking vaccination every citizen is ensuring the safety of the entire community. By taking the step forward for the prevention of viral diseases.

I hope the importance of taking the vaccination is clear for you now.

Patient

Yes, I realize the importance now.

Thank you for your understanding. Well Patricia, I would like to know more details about your current medications? If any Can you please explain to me?

Patient

Yes, sure Nurse. I have rheumatoid arthritis and I am on immunosuppressants.

Alright, For Clarification Can you please tell me the type of immunosuppressants you are taking?

Patient

Yes, I am taking methotrexate injections and sulfasalazine tablets.

Thank you, Other than this Are you on any other medications?

Patient

No Nurse, I am not taking any other medications.

Thank you for your information Patricia, now I can confirm to you that your medications have no contraindication with the seasonal flu vaccination. It is totally safe to have them and ensure your safety against the flu.

Patient

That’s good to hear.

By the way Patricia, it is very important for you to get a flu vaccination, Since you have rheumatoid arthritis. It is because rheumatoid arthritis will suppress the immune system. Therefore, you will be at higher risk of contracting flu, which in turn can cause serious complications. I think you understand the importance of taking the flu vaccination.

Patient

Yes Nurse, Your explanation conveys to me the importance of taking the flu vaccination. But nurse I am concerned about the side effects of the flu vaccination.

Your concern is quite natural, and I agree with your thoughts. Obviously every medication will have some side effects. Perhaps, the foremost thing to remember is that these side effects are temporary and mild in nature. Some of the side effects you may experience include fatigue, muscle aches, slight temperature, etc. which are easily manageable and you will recover in no time.

Patient

Okay, I got it. But nurse Last year I took the flu vaccination. So why is it important to take it now?

Your question is reasonable. Since the last vaccination was a year ago, The possibility of still contracting flu is high. I can explain why it is so. There will be variations in flu strains as they rapidly evolve. Thus, the protection of the previous flu vaccine will only be against some strains. That is why it is strongly recommended to get the flu vaccination every year.

Patient

Okay.

Beyond the flu vaccine, I can give some advice to prevent the flu contraction. Some of the other ways you can adopt to avoid the flu are, maintaining good hygiene and careful social interaction mainly by reducing physical contact. Thereby preventing the spread of flu strains And so on.

Patient

Alright, I’ll take care of it as well.

I appreciate your consideration patricia. Can I book an appointment for your vaccination?

Patient

Of course, you may Please book my appointment Nurse.

Thank you for your consent and I appreciate your decision as well. Patricia, if you have any other questions always feel free to contact us.

Patient

Sure Thank you, That is the end of your only speaking role Play. All the best.

Thank you.
