Annual flu vaccination clinics are held throughout the winter period. If you are one of those who qualify for this, please contact the surgery closer to the time to find out more.
If you are in your seventies, you may be eligible to receive a free shingles vaccination under the national programme. Please contact the surgery to see if you are eligible.
Pneumococcal or pneumonia vaccine in adults is given to people aged 65 and over and people at high risk because they have long-term health conditions. People aged 65 and over only need a single pneumococcal vaccination. This vaccine is not given annually like the flu jab. People with a long-term health condition may need just a single one-off pneumococcal vaccination or vaccination every 5 years, depending on their underlying health problem.
