Flu vaccinations this year will be given according to age group and risk. Please ensure that you book into the appropriate clinic, if you do not book into the appropriate clinic you may not be given your vaccine. This is to prioritise the people at highest risk first.

Please be aware that flu clinics are by appointment only.

All patients aged 50-64

Please note that people in the 50-64-year old age group will not be vaccinated until November and December, providing there is sufficient vaccine, and no appointments will be offered for this age group until then. This is to ensure that those who are most at risk are vaccinated first.  If you are 50-64 and you are in one of the other groups which is eligible for the flu vaccination, for example you have a health condition which puts you at risk from the flu, you will be invited earlier.

Housebound patients

If you are housebound please call the surgery so we can arrange for a District Nurse to administer the vaccination for you

In the autumn/winter of 2020 to 2021, the vaccine will be available free on the NHS for eligible children, including:

  • children aged 2 to 17 with long-term health conditions

Who will give the children’s flu vaccination?

Children aged 2 and 3 will be given the vaccination at their GP surgery, usually by the practice nurse.

Children who are 4 years old are also eligible for flu vaccination provided they were 3 on 31 August 2020.

These children should be offered the vaccination at their GP surgery.

Children who are home educated will also be offered the vaccine, provided they’re in an eligible age group.

Children aged 4 years old whose entry to primary school has been deferred will also be offered the vaccine.

Parents can get information about how to arrange this from their local NHS England Public Health Commissioning team.

Some individuals who were eligible for the shingles (catch-up) vaccination programme may have turned 80 years during the COVID-19 pandemic and missed the opportunity to be vaccinated, either due to lockdown or because they were shielding at home and unable to attend their general practice.

This cohort of individuals is likely to be very small and can still be offered shingles vaccine unless contraindicated, up to 31 December 2020. This temporary offer applies only to those who missed shingles vaccination because they were shielding and who turned 80 years of age during that period. It is only applicable to periods of time when lockdown or shielding was recommended.

Protect yourself from the pain of shingles – speak to your GP surgery about having your vaccine today.

You can have the shingles vaccination at any time of year.

Pneumonia Vaccine

People aged 65 and over only need a single pneumococcal vaccination. This vaccine is not given annually like the flu jab. People with a long-term health condition may need just a single one-off pneumococcal vaccination or vaccination every 5 years, depending on their underlying health problem.

Patient who are aged  65 year +  who are have not had a Pneumonia Vaccination.
