Important information about flu vaccinations

We are prioritising COVID-19 booster vaccinations because of the rise of the Omicron variant. Therefore you will no longer routinely be given the flu vaccination at the clinics.

If you are 64 and under, and are not in a higher-risk category, you will no longer be offered a flu vaccination this season.

If you are:

  • aged 65 and over
  • 16 and over with an underlying health condition
  • 16 and over and an unpaid carer or household contact of an immunosuppressed person

check with your community pharmacy, or check the NHS inform website in January to see when we may be able to recommence flu vaccination in some clinics.

If you are pregnant, speak to your midwife who can give you the flu vaccine.
