Who needs the flu vaccination?
Anyone who suffers from a health condition, who is pregnant, who is 65 or over or those who work in healthcare, should get the flu vaccine.
This year the Flu immunisation will be offered to children aged 2-5 in the GP practice. Children of primary school age will be given the flu vaccine at school. If you have any questions regarding the immunisation at school please contact the school itself.
If you have a health condition, flu can hit you hardest. The vaccine is the safest and most effective way of protecting yourself.
Conditions and diseases which can make flu much more dangerous include:
- liver problems (such as cirrhosis/hepatitis)
