Flu 2018/19

The effectiveness of flu jabs notoriously declines as people get older and was effective in just one in 10 over-65s last winter!

The flu vaccine will therefore be given slightly differently this year.

18-64 years

Eligible patients in this age group will be offered the Quadrivalent vaccine which protects against four strains of flu.

65 years and over

Patients in this age group will be offered the Adjuvanted Trivalent vaccine which protects against three strains of flu.

However, this enhanced vaccine contains extra ingredients designed to help aged immune systems develop a stronger defence against flu.

Children

Children born 01/09/14 - 31/08/16 are eligible to have their Fluenz nasal vaccine here.

Children in Reception to Year 5 will have their vaccine at school (those with a chronic disease can also have their vaccine here if they miss the school session)

Children 10-17 with a chronic disease are eligible for a vaccine here.
