Seasonal vaccinations

Flu vaccination

Annually in the autumn and winter we run a programme to vaccinate patients against influenza. All patients over 65 or in the ‘at risk’ categories are eligible for immunisation. The categories are

  • Respiratory Disease including Asthma
  • Diabetes
  • Heart Disease
  • Renal Failure
  • Children aged 2-4 (Nasal spray)

Find out more about the Flu vaccination on the NHS website here.

If you are over 65 you will also be eligible for a Pneumovax Immunisation (if you have not had this previously and they last 10 years). Please mention this to the receptionists when you telephone us to make your appointment.

Shingles vaccination

If you are aged 78 or 79 you are also entitled to a Shingles Vaccination
