2016 Seasonal Flu Vaccination

Flu (also known as influenza) is a highly infectious illness caused by the flu virus. It spreads rapidly through small droplets coughed or sneezed into the air by an infected person.   For most people, flu is unpleasant but not serious. You will usually recover within a week.

Studies have shown that flu vaccines provide effective protection against the flu, although protection may not be complete and may vary between people. Protection from the vaccine gradually decreases and flu strains change over time. Therefore, new vaccines are made each year and people at risk of flu are encouraged to be vaccinated every year.

The flu vaccination is offered to people in at-risk groups. These people are at greater risk of developing serious complications if they catch flu, such as pregnant women and elderly people.

If you are eligible to receive a flu vaccination, please contact us at your earliest convenience to book your appointment.

Eligible patients are:

  • Over 65 years of age
  • With a chronic respiratory, heart, kidney, liver or neurological disease in patients over 6 months of age
  • Pregnant women
  • Diabetic patients - aged 6 months and over
  • Immunosuppression due to disease treatment - aged 6 months or over
  • No spleen or dysfunction of spleen
  • Carers; those in receipt of carers allowance or the main carer of an elderly or disabled person whose welfare may be at risk if the carer falls ill
  • All children aged 2,3 and 4 years on the 1st September 2014 will be eligible for flu vaccination.  This will be given intranasally, but if this route is contraindicated, it will be given by injection.
