Flu Vaccinations Information

FLU VACCINATION PROGRAMME HAS CHANGED!

This year different vaccines are recommended for different age groups.

This will mean that clinics will have to be separated by age to ensure you receive the correct, most effective vaccine for you.

You will be invited to your specific clinic by text message or invitation letter as soon as vaccine supplies are received and your clinic date has been set.

If you attend the incorrect clinic you cannot receive your vaccine at that time.

As the guidance was changed late in the day there will be a national difficulty for surgeries and pharmacies to get supplies. Delivery of vaccine stocks are spread from late Sept – November

This may mean that you have to wait to have your vaccination. We have been asked to vaccinate those aged 75 years and older as a priority.
