Flu Vaccine

Each year the seasonal (annual) flu vaccine contains three common influenza virus strains. The flu virus changes each year this is why a new flu vaccine has to be given each year. This year’s flu vaccine may contain the Swine Flu strain.

Vaccination is strongly recommended for:

  • persons 65 and over,
  • those with a long-term medical condition such as diabetes, heart or lung disease,
  • people whose immune system is impaired due to disease or treatment,
  • healthcare workers,
  • residents of nursing homes and other long stay institutions,
  • persons with a body mass index (BMI) over 40,
  • pregnant women. (can be given at any stage of pregnancy),
  • carers
  • people with regular close contact with poultry, water fowl or pigs.

Appointments will be available from October to have your flu vaccination.
