Who should get the flu vaccine?

The flu vaccine is offered for FREE on the NHS to patients that fit the following criteria:

  • adults 65 and over
  • people with certain medical conditions (including children in at-risk groups from 6 months of age)
  • pregnant women
  • people living with someone who’s at high risk from coronavirus (on the NHS shielded patient list)
  • children aged 2 and 3 on 31 August 2020 (vaccines will be given by us, clinic dates are to be confirmed)
  • children in primary school (vaccines will be given at school)
  • children in year 7 (vaccines will be given at school)
  • frontline health or social care workers

What about patients aged 50-64?

Unfortunately we have not yet received any guidance on giving flu vaccinations to patients that are aged 50-64 and not otherwise eligible. We are expecting this programme to start no earlier than November, and will inform all patients that it affects as soon as we have the information. However, if you’re aged 50 to 64 and in an at-risk group, you should not delay having your flu vaccine.

The stock of flu vaccinations that we currently have in practice are allocated to our patients aged over 65 and those that fit the eligibility criteria.

 

Our clinic dates:
