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.
