Flu vaccinations are currently offered free of charge to the following groups:

- All those aged two, three, and four years old (but not five years or older) on 1st September 2019.
- All school-aged children who are part of the pilot childhood programme.
- People with a chronic (long-term) respiratory disease, such as severe asthma, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) or bronchitis.
- People with chronic heart disease, such as heart failure.
- People with chronic kidney disease at stage three, four or 5.
- People with chronic liver disease.
- People with chronic neurological disease, such as Parkinson’s disease or motor neurone disease.
- People with diabetes.
- People with splenic dysfunction.
- People with a weakened immune system due to disease (such as HIV/AIDS) or treatment (such as cancer treatment).
- People living in long-stay residential care homes or other long-stay care facilities where rapid spread is likely to follow introduction of infection and cause high morbidity and mortality (this does not include, for instance, prisons, young offender institutions, or university halls of residence).
- People who are in receipt of a carer’s allowance, or those who are the main carer of an older or disabled person whose welfare may be at risk if the carer falls ill.
The list above is not exhaustive and decisions should be based on a practitioner’s clinical judgement. Consideration should also be given to the vaccination of household contacts of immunocompromised individuals, specifically individuals who expect to share living accommodation on most days over the winter and therefore for whom continuing close contact is unavoidable.
NHS Health Checks
If you are aged between 40 and 74 you may be invited for a routine health check. However, you do not need to wait for an invitation letter; you can also book an appointment.
These health checks are aimed at preventing heart disease, strokes, diabetes and kidney disease. It will involve a 20 minute check up with the HCA who will also do a blood test to check your cholesterol.
Our travel health clinic is held by one of our practice nurses. The following vaccines are available free on the NHS: Polio, Typhoid, Hepatitis A and Cholera.
Please complete our Travel Risk Assessment form and our Practice Nurse will review this and call/text you direct to arrange a mutually convenient time for you to come and get the necessary vaccinations.
Please be aware that some vaccinations need to be given over a course of weeks – our nurse will advise you of this and we therefore kindly remind you to allow enough time for your vaccinations to be given fully before you travel.
