The Flu Vaccination Programme

Flu is a highly infectious illness that can spread rapidly from person to person. Because it is a virus, antibiotics cannot treat it and it can lead to complications in vulnerable individuals. Therefore, it is very important to protect yourself against flu by simply having the vaccination.

You will soon be asked to ring reception to book your appointment if you have any of the following, or you usually have the vaccination.

  • All patients over 65
  • Any patients with chronic respiratory disease, heart disease, kidney or liver disease.
  • Chronic neurological disease
  • Diabetes type 1 and type 2
  • Immunosuppressed
  • Pregnant Women
  • Persons in long stay care homes or other long stay care facilities
  • Carers
  • Health and Social Care Workers

Children aged 2 & 3 are offered a nasal flu vaccine as part of a UK wide comprehensive vaccination programme.

This is not an exhaustive list - patients may receive vaccination at their GP's discretion.

 Please call our receptionists on 01889 562010 to book your flu vaccination.

 

There may also be the opportunity for you to have the Shingles Vaccination if eligible.

The Shingles Vaccination Programme

The purpose of the Shingles vaccination programme is to reduce the incidence and severity of shingles disease in older people. Shingles is caused by the same virus that causes chickenpox.

Shingles is a common disease that can cause long-lasting, severe pain. It can cause permanent disability, and it occurs more frequently in those over 70 years old, who are also more likely to have worse symptoms.

You only have to have the shingles vaccination once. Click here to see if your age makes you eligible for the shingles vaccination.
