FLU VACCINATIONS 2017 Posted on 3 Jan 2020

The flu vaccine

A flu vaccine is available for free on the NHS for:

  • anyone over the age of 65 
  • pregnant women
  • children and adults with an underlying health condition (particularly long-term heart or lung disease)
  • children and adults with weakened immune systems

An annual flu vaccine nasal spray is also now offered to healthy children aged two, three and four years old, and to children in school years one and two. 

The best time to have the vaccine is in the autumn, between September and early November. If you think you might need it you can ring us and check.

You should have the flu vaccination every year so you stay protected, as the viruses that cause flu change every year.

For more information on who should have the flu vaccine and how to get it, read the sections on the NHS Choices web site on the flu jab for adults, the flu jab for pregnant women and the children's flu vaccine.
