Winter Vaccination Programme
You may have seen in the press that there are some changes to the winter vaccination programme this year.
The flu vaccination will continue as in previous years. Patients in risk groups and those aged over 65 are eligible for a free flu jab and we will be starting clinics at the beginning of October. If you usually have a flu jab, you don’t need to wait until we write to you. Speak to a receptionist about booking an appointment.
There is now a free Shingles Vaccination for those aged 70 and 79 years, i.e. born between the following dates:
· 2.9.1942 – 1.9.1943 or
· 2.9.1933 – 1.9.1934
This vaccination only needs to be given once. We will be offering this vaccination to eligible patients in our flu vaccination clinics.
Flu Vaccinations for 2 - 3 year olds
This year we are offering the flu vaccination to all 2 - 3 year olds i.e. those born between 2.9.2009 - 1.9.2011. We will be sending out an invite to all those children who are eligible. The vaccination will be given as a nasal spray.
This is part of a programme that aims to eventually protect all children aged 2 - 16 years.
The Shingles and children’s flu campaigns are national vaccination campaigns and are Government policy. We cannot vaccinate any patient who does not fall in to the appropriate age category. You can find out more about these vaccination programmes on the NHS website at www.nhs.uk.
