Seasonal Flu Vaccinations  

This protects against seasonal flu and is recommended annually for the following groups of people:


  • All people aged 65 years and over.
  • All those with a long-term health condition, e.g. heart or lung problems, diabetes, asthma.
  • Healthcare workers
  • Carers
  • All pregnant women at any stage of pregnancy.
  • Children aged 2, 3 and 4 years (nasal flu vaccination).


It is given every year starting in October/November. We will write to the above groups of patients inviting them to make an appointment to attend the surgery.

 

People aged 70 years are also eligible for a shingles vaccination which can be given at the same time as the flu vaccination.
