Flu Vaccinations 2021

Appointments are now available to book via online or telephone.

Please be prepared and set up your online access via the NHS app as the appointments will be live in September. Due to the social distancing measures and the bigger campaign this year we would appreciate your help to keep everyone safe via social distancing, wearing a mask and washing your hands.

The flu vaccination is available every year on the NHS to help protect adults and children at risk of flu and its complications. Even if you are fit and well, it is normally recommended that those who are entitled or at risk, have their free flu vaccination. If you are one of the following groups, you are at a higher risk of catching flu, which can lead to serious complications, such as pneumonia. 

 

Please book a flu jab:

  • If you are 50 and over
  • If you are a patient aged 18-64 with a medical condition
  • If you have lowered immunity which puts you at a higher risk if you get the flu.
  • If you are pregnant
  • If you are living with someone with a weakened immune system
  • If you are living in a long-stay care home
  • If you are the main carer for an older disabled person
  • If you are a health or social worker
