Help the NHS this winter! The flu circulating this winter is expected to be particularly nasty. Even if you are normally fit and well, we will invite you to have a free flu vaccine if you are in one of the groups below. This because you are at higher risk of being admitted to hospital for serious complications if you catch flu.
YES- DEFINITELY INVITED - all patients aged 65 or over (and 64 year olds who turn 65 before the end of March 2020). Our next delivery of the vaccine that is most effective for your age group (aTIV flu jab) will arrive in time for the clinic.
YES- DEFINITELY INVITED - patients aged 64 and under who are ALSO in one of the groups below. The vaccine that is most effective for your age group (QIVe flu jab) will be delivered in limited quantities in time for the clinic.
