Flu Vaccination

Influenza is a serious disease that can be lead to hospitalisation and sometimes even death.  Every flu season is different, and influenza infection can effect people differently.  Even healthy people get very sick from the flu and spread it to others.

An annual seasonal flu vaccine is the best way to reduce the chances that you will get seasonal flu and lesson the chance that you will spread it to others.  When more people get vaccinated again flu, less can spread through that community.

Patients that are usually eligible for a flu vaccination are those patients that fall into one of the following categories;

  • Patients over 65
  • Patients under 65 who are in an at risk group
  • Pregnant ladies
  • Carers

As we have a limited stock of flu vaccinations, then please contact the practice to book an appointment for your vaccination.

Fluenz

Fluenz is the vaccination that is given to patients between the ages of 24 months and 18 years of age.  When a person if given the vaccine, the immune system (the bodys natural defense system) will produce its own protection against the influenza virus.  The vaccine is administered in the form of a nasal spray and non of the ingredients contained can cause flu.

The Practice will contact the parents/guardians of all patients who are eligible to have this vaccination.
