The government strongly advises that everyone who is eligible for a free vaccination takes up the offer to avoid widespread flu outbreaks while we continue to deal with the Coronavirus. It is everyone's responsibility to be vaccinated, not only to protect them from illness, but also to protect others by not spreading the flu virus in the community, which in turn protects the NHS as a whole.

  • those aged 65 years and over

  • those aged 6 months to under 65 years in clinical risk groups eg Diabetes, Heart failure, COPD, Asthma

  • pregnant women

  • all children aged 2 or 3 years on 31 August 2023 

  • primary school aged children (from Reception to Year 6) - This will be given in school unless child in clinical risk group (eg Asthma on inhaled steroids, heart problems) then can be given at the Practice.

  • those in long-stay residential care homes

  • carers in receipt of carer’s allowance, or those who are the main carer of an elderly or disabled person
