Flu Immunisations

Having a flu vaccine does not give you flu and it is safe to have a vaccine

Our seasonal flu vaccination programme has began from the beginning of October.

Patients will be able to book an appointment at one of our drop in clinics held on a Saturday or during the week if you are unable to attend on the Saturday.

Below is a list of “at risk groups” included in this year’s programme:

  • All patients 65 and over
  • All those aged over 6 months and in a clinical risk group :
    • Chronic respiratory disease and asthma that requires continuous use of inhaled steroids
    • Coronary heart disease
    • Chronic renal disease
    • Chronic liver disease
    • Diabetes
    • Immunosuppression due to disease of treatment, including patients undergoing chemotherapy, patients who have had a splenectomy, patients treated with or likely to be treated with systemic steroid for more than 1 month at a dose equivalent to Prednisolone at 20mgs or more per day.
  • Multiple Sclerosis
  • Parkinsons disease
  • Motor neurone disease
  • Patients living in long stay residential/nursing care homes
  • Main carers of elderly or disabled person whose welfare may be at risk, if the carer falls ill

Live Attenuated infulenza vaccine (Nasal spray) for children from 2 years of age to under 18 years of age (mainly for the 2-3 year olds).

Any child over the age of 3 whose parents are requesting they have them done here, should have a very tangible reason why it can not be done at school. If there is a clinical contracindication, please can it be specified when the appointment is booked with the nurse.
