Book Your Flu Jab

You can get your annual flu jab at our surgery, quickly, easily and for free under the NHS.

The flu vaccination is available to help protect adults and children at risk of flu.

Flu is not nice to have, but if you are otherwise healthy it will usually clear up on its own within a week.

However, flu can be more severe in certain people, such as:

  • Anyone aged 65 and over
  • Pregnant women
  • Children and adults with an underlying health condition (particularly long-term heart or respiratory disease)
  • Children and adults with weakened immune systems

Anyone in these risk groups is more likely to develop potentially serious complications of flu, such as pneumonia (a lung infection), so it’s recommended that they have a flue vaccine every year to protect them.

The flu vaccine is offered free on the NHS annually to:

  • Adults over the age of 18 at risk of flu (including everyone aged 65 and over)
  • Pregnant women
  • Children aged six months to two years at risk of flu
  • Carers

65 and overs and the flu vaccine:

You are eligible for the flu vaccine this year (2018/19) if you will be aged 65 and over March 31 2019 – that is, you were born on or before March 31 1954. So, if you are currently 64 but will be 65 on March 31 2019, you do qualify.


If you fall in the categories above, you are entitled to a free flu jab. To book in a vaccination please ring the surgery or Request a Routine Appointment through the website.

More information about the flu vaccination can be found on the NHS Website.
