Flu Clinics and Shingles Vaccinations
Now is the time to get your flu vaccine.
If you are aged 65 or over then you are eligible and should contact the surgery as soon as possible to make an appointment.You are also eligible if you are pregnant, are a registered carer, or if you have an underlying health condition.
We also have a stock of the nasal vaccine spray for children so if your child is aged 2,3 or 4 or has an underlying health condition then please contact the surgery to book an appointment with a nurse.
From September 1 2016, the shingles vaccine will be offered routinely to people aged 70 and, as a catch up, to those aged 78. You become eligible for the vaccine on the first day of September 2016 after you've turned 70 or 78.
In addition, anyone who was eligible for immunisation in the previous three years of the programme but missed out on their shingles vaccination remains eligible until their 80th birthday. This includes:
- people aged 71, 72 and 73 on September 1 2016
- people aged 79 on September 1 2016
You can have the shingles vaccination at any time of year, though many people will find it convenient to have it at the same time as their annual flu vaccination. If you are unsure of your eligibility then please call in to the surgery or ring us on 01845 523157.
