Seasonal Vaccinations

Flu Vaccination

Annually in the autumn and winter we run a programme to vaccinate patients against influenza. All patients over 65 or in the 'at risk' categories are eligible for immunisation. The categories are

• Respiratory Disease including Asthma

• Diabetes

• Heart Disease

• Renal Failure.

• Children aged 2-4 (Nasal spray)

 

If you are over 65 you will also be eligible for a Pneumovax Immunisation (if you have not had this previously and they last 10 years). Please mention this to the receptionists when you telephone us to make your appointment.

If you are aged 78 or 79 you are also entitled to a Shingles Vaccination

Covid Vaccination

The NHS is currently offering the COVID-19 vaccine to people most at risk.

 

In England, the COVID-19 vaccine is being offered in some hospitals and pharmacies, at local centres run by GPs and at larger vaccination centres. 

The order in which people will be offered the vaccine is based on advice from the Joint Committee on Vaccination and Immunisation (JCVI).  Find out more about who can get a COVID-19 vaccine
