SEASONAL FLU VACCINATION

The Flu Vaccine

FLU VACCINE

The seasonal flu vaccine becomes available in our surgery from September every year. The viruses that cause the flu change with every flu season and this is why you need a new vaccine each year. It is administered by our nurses and doctors. The flu vaccine is strongly recommended if you:

  • are 65 years or over

  • are pregnant

  • have a long term health condition

  • work in healthcare

  • are a carer

  • live in a nursing home or other long term care facility

  • are in regular contact with pigs or poultry​
