Flu Vaccinations  

A Flu vaccination is available every year on the NHS to help protect adults and children at risk of flu and its complications.  Flu can be unpleasant, but if you are otherwise healthy it will usually clear up on its own within a week.

However, flu can be more severe in certain people, such as

  • Anyone aged 65 and over
  • Patients with chronic diseases such as COPD, Diabetes, Coronary Heart Disease, Renal Disease, Stroke/TIA should receive a yearly Influenza Vaccination.
  • Pregnant women
  • Children and adults with an underlying health condition (particularly long-term heart or respiratory disease)
  • Children and adults with weakened immune systems

The flu vaccine is routinely given on the NHS as an annual nasal spray to:

  • Children aged two, three and four years old
  • Children ages two to 17 years at a particular risk of flu


It is also recommended that Carers have a yearly Influenza vaccination.
