Flu vaccinations 2019
It’s never too early to start thinking about protecting yourself from flu.
The flu vaccine is the best way of protecting yourself against the virus. You will be eligible for a free flu vaccination if you are a registered patient and are:
- Over 65
- Have certain medical conditions including, but not limited to, chronic (long-term) conditions such as:
respiratory, heart, kidney and liver diseases, neurological conditions such as Parkinson’s disease and MS, diabetes, and a weakened immune system (or if you live with someone who has).
- If you receive a carer’s allowance, or you are the main carer for an elderly or disabled person whose welfare may be at risk if you fall ill, or if you receive a carer’s allowance.
We have already ordered your vaccine, please support your local GP practice by having your flu vaccination with us.
If you have any questions or to check if you are eligible, please contact us so we can provide further advice and information.
Housebound patients who are eligible for the flu jab will be contacted by the district nurses.
