Influenza Vaccination

Who is eligible for vaccination against flu?

Flu vaccination is available every year from the end of September for:

    • Those aged over 65
    • Children aged 2, 3 or 4 (on the 1st September 2015)
      Children in school years 1 & 2 will be sent letter offering the nasal vaccination in Boots pharmacies
    • People who are at risk of becoming seriously ill if they get flu because of other diseases (such as chronic heart, lung, kidney disease, diabetes or immuno-suppression)
    • Regular carers of people in ill health
    • Pregnant women
    • 'Front line' care workers (vaccines are normally given through their employers)

Flu vaccination for under 18s

Children aged 2or 4 years old on 1st September 2015 are being offered a vaccination to protect against flu.  The vaccine for them is a nasal spray that is easily and painlessly administered.

The same nasal spray will also be used to vaccinate any child or young person aged 6 months - 17 who is in an 'at risk' group (e.g. children with asthma bad enough to use regular steroid inhalers).

You can find out more about the nasal vaccine for children here.

Flu Vaccination for those not in an ‘at risk’ group

Patients who are not in an 'at risk' group are not eligible for the flu vaccine on the NHS. Flu vaccinations can be given privately at pharmacies.
