These are run for a short period only in autumn and are particularly aimed at people aged 65 and over, people with long-term medical conditions and younger adults and children whose health is otherwise compromised and may not be able to fight off such a virus. At risk patients will be invited in by letter in advance of our yearly flu campaign clinics. If you wish to be immunised with the flu vaccination and do not receive an invitation letter you may contact local participating pharmacies that can provide this service privately for any patient who wishes to have this that does not meet the required health criteria for invitation into the practice for this.
Pneumonia vaccine is also available. Please enquire about this when you attend for your flu vaccine.
