Flu Vaccination Information

Who is eligible for the flu vaccination this year?

As per recent guidance from the Joint Committee on Vaccination and Immunisation, the following people will be offered the flu vaccination this year:

  • all children aged 2 to 15 (but not 16 years or older) on 31 August 2021
  • those aged 6 months to under 50 years in clinical risk groups*
  • pregnant women
  • those aged 50 years and over
  • those in long-stay residential care homes
  • carers
  • close contacts of immunocompromised individuals
  • frontline health and social care staff employed by:
    • a registered residential care or nursing home
    • registered domiciliary care provider
    • a voluntary managed hospice provider
    • Direct Payment (personal budgets) and/or Personal Health Budgets, such as Personal Assistants.

How can I book my appointment?

Patient 18 years and older

We ask that where possible all eligible patients book their appointment via their online access or NHS App account to help reduce the strain on our already very busy phone lines.

If you are unable to book online we ask that you call the surgery during our less busy periods (10am to 11.30am, then after 3pm).

Children aged 6 months to 17 years

We are expecting that the majority of school aged children will be offered the flu vaccination at school. The surgery will therefore focus on vaccinating children not currently in school.
