Flu Vaccinations

By appointment with the practice nurse during early autumn.

We recommend flu vaccinations for all elderly patients and patients with severe or chronic illnesses that have been advised by the doctor.

The Department of Health recommends that all patients with asthma, chronic heart disease, chronic renal failure, diabetes and anybody with a form of immunosuppression be offered flu vaccination.

Flu vaccinations are also recommended for all residents of nursing homes, residential homes and long stay facilities where there is a risk of rapid spread of any such infection.
