FLU VACCINE PROGRAMME
Our flu vaccine programme commences each year in October. All patients over the age of 65 years and those most at risk of developing flu have been invited to attend to receive their vaccine.
This year all children aged 2 years of age and over, not yet at primary school will be included in the programme and will be invited to attend by the practice.
All children attending primary school will be offered the vaccine in school.
If you are aged 70 or 78 this year you will also be offered the shingles vaccine. For further information on the benefits of this vaccine please read the detailed leaflet which you will have received from the practice. This vaccine will be rolled out to other people in their seventies in future years.
