For details of our vaccination clinics and eligibility, please check below for further information.


Flu Vaccinations

Seasonal Influenza (also known as flu) is a common, contagious disease caused by a virus. Flu can lead to serious health conditions such as pneumonia and bacterial infections. The best way to protect yourself is to have a flu vaccine. These are offered in the surgery from mid-September every year for those who are 65 years of age or over, are pregnant, a carer or suffer from one of the following chronic medical conditions:

  • Diabetes
  • Chronic heart disease
  • Chronic respiratory disease such as asthma requiring regular inhaled steroids, or chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD)
  • Chronic kidney disease
  • Chronic liver disease
  • Chronic neurological disease such as Parkinson’s disease, motor neurone disease or learning disability
  • Immunosuppression due to diseases such as HIV/AIDS or treatment such as cancer treatment
  • Asplenia or dysfunction of the spleen
  • Morbidly obese adults – defined as those with a Body Mass Index (BMI) of 40 or above. To calculate your BMI please use this link

All nurses and carers working in residential and care homes will be eligible to receive their flu vaccination from the Community Pharmacy NHS Seasonal Influenza Vaccination Serviceor from the surgery if you are in one of the eligible clinical risk groups highlighted above.

Children’s Flu Programme

All primary school aged children will be offered the flu vaccine through the school nursing service. This includes children from Reception to Year 6. Your child’s school will contact you to provide you with more information and to let you know when the clinics are scheduled.

The pre-school flu programme for 2 and 3 year olds will be offered from the surgery.

The children’s flu vaccine is in the form of a single spray squirted up each nostril. It is quick and painless and is absorbed very quickly. It will still work even if, after the vaccination, your child develops a runny nose, sneezes or blows their nose.
