'FLU, SHINGLES & PNEUMOCOCCAL CLINICS NOW BOOKING . . . PLEASE PHONE FOR AN APPOINTMENT
For 2018, there are 3 types of flu vaccine:
- a live quadrivalent vaccine (which protects against 4 strains of flu), given as a nasal spray. This is for children and young people aged 2 to 17 years eligible for the flu vaccine
- a quadrivalent injected vaccine. This is for adults aged 18 and over but below the age of 65 who are at increased risk from flu because of a long-term health condition and for children 6 months and above in an eligible group who cannot receive the live vaccine
- an adjuvanted trivalent injected vaccine. This is for people aged 65 and over as it has been shown to be more effective in this age group
- The Practice has ordered supplies of all the different types of vaccine for the different groups in our population, and will be using an algorithm to ensure that the different groups in the population receive the correct vaccination for their age and health conditions in exact accordance with the guidance which has been issued by NHS England.
