Seasonal Influenza Vaccinations
We normally start flu vaccinations from September and these are available due to your age or those patients who fit the medical criteria for vaccination.
You are eligible for a pneumonia vaccine if you are over 65 years old, anyone aged 2-64 years with a underlying health condition. Normally this vaccine is one in a life time vaccination.You can have a pneumonia vaccine all year round.
A vaccine to prevent shingles, a common, painful skin disease is available on the NHS to people in their 70s. You’re eligible for the shingles vaccine if you are aged 70 or 78 years old. In addition, anyone who was previously eligible (born on or after 2 September 1942) but missed out on their shingles vaccination remains eligible until their 80th birthday.
