Flu Vaccinations

Get ready for winter viruses

Flu and COVID-19 can both be life-threatening and spread more easily in winter, when we are all crowded together inside. Most adults and children will be eligible for a flu jab, COVID-19 booster, or both. It’s the most effective way to boost our natural immunity and protect ourselves from these viruses. So, book your vaccine appointments now and BOOST your immunity this winter.

So it’s important to get your flu vaccine this year as well as your COVID-19 vaccines. The flu vaccine is given free on the NHS to people who:

  • 50 and over (including those who’ll be 50 by 31 March 2022)
  • have certain health conditions
  • are pregnant
  • are in long-stay residential care
  • receive a carer’s allowance, or are the main carer for an older or disabled person who may be at risk if you get sick
  • live with someone who is more likely to get infections (such as someone who has HIV, has had a transplant or is having certain treatments for cancer, lupus or rheumatoid arthritis)
  • frontline health or social care workers

if you are in the following at risk groups:

  • Over 65 Years
  • Pregnant
  • Diabetic
  • Have a long-term condition that affects:
    • Lungs – e.g. asthma or COPD
    • Heart – ischaemic heart disease or angina
    • Brain or nervous system – stroke or TIA
    • Kidneys – CKD
    • Liver – cirrhosis or hepatitis
    • Immune System – immunocompromised due to disease or medication
    • Spleen – splenectomy

Please see NHS website – Who Should Have The Flu Vaccination for full details.

More information on the flu jab is available here.

For children 17 and under flu immunisation is offered based on eligibility – please see NHS Children’s Flu Vaccine for details.

Please speak to reception about making an appointment for adult or child flu vaccinations
