IMMUNISATIONS

This practice follows the national policy for childhood immunisation. Further information can be found on the NHS Immunisation Schedule website.

 

Seasonal Influenza Vaccinations

For most people, flu is an unpleasant illness, but it’s not serious. If you are otherwise healthy, you will usually recover from flu within a week.

However, certain people are more likely to develop potentially serious complications of flu, such as bronchitis and pneumonia. These people should have a flu jab each year.

 

People who should have a flu jab

The injected flu vaccine is offered free of charge on the NHS to people who are at risk to ensure that they are protected against catching flu and developing serious complications.

You are eligible to receive a free flu jab if you:

  • are 65 years of age or over
  • children over the age of six months with a long-term health condition
  • are pregnant
  • have certain medical conditions (see NHS website for more details)
  • are living in a long-stay residential care home or other long-stay care facility
  • receive a carer’s allowance, or you are the main carer for an elderly or disabled person whose welfare may be at risk if you fall ill
  • are a healthcare worker with direct patient contact or a social care worker (see below)

Changes introduced this year mean that healthy children aged two, three and four will also be eligible for vaccination with us.

For full details about eligibility please refer to NHS website.
