Many people are eligible for a Seasonal Influenza Vaccination (flu jab). At the Red and Green Practice we operate an invitation system, we write to and invite all eligible patients for a flu jab, the letters start going out annually in September. If you have not received a letter please check the website below to double check your eligibility before contacting the surgery.
Visit the NHS Choices Website for more information.
We will also be offering vaccinations to all children aged 2, 3 and 4 years and any children under 18 who are in a clinical risk group. All children in school years 1 and 2 will be offered the vaccination in school and receive their vaccination from the School Nursing Team.
For children the vaccine will be given as a nasal spray and NOT an injection. This is in line with Government recommendations.
