FLU CLINIC  

 

Appointments now available

The earlier you get your flu vaccination the better - Mop up appointments still available

     

 

If a patient books an appointment online, but is NOT entitled to receive a vaccination, the Practice will contact them and cancel the appointment if there is no need to vaccinate.  

 

  Below is a list of the criteria you must come under to receive a vaccination. 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 


All patients aged 65 years and over


 

All 2 to 5 year oldsThis is a new group to be offered the flu vaccination this year!
Patients under 65 years who are in an at risk category as follows: 

Chronic respiratory disease aged six months or older


Asthma that requires continuous or repeated use of inhaled or systemic steroids or with previous exacerbations requiring hospital admission. Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) including chronic bronchitis and emphysema; bronchiectasis, cystic fibrosis, interstitial lung fibrosis, pneumoconiosis and bronchopulmonary dysplasia (BPD). Children who have previously been admitted to hospital for lower respiratory tract disease.


Chronic heart disease aged six months or older


Congenital heart disease, hypertension with cardiac complications, chronic heart failure, individuals requiring regular medication and/or follow-up for ischaemic heart disease.


Chronic kidney disease aged six months or older


Chronic kidney disease at stage 3, 4 or 5, chronic kidney failure, nephrotic syndrome, kidney transplantation.


Chronic liver disease aged six months or older


Cirrhosis, biliary artesia, chronic hepatitis


Chronic neurological disease aged six months or older


Stroke, transient ischaemic attack (TIA). Conditions in which respiratory function may be compromised, due to neurological disease (e.g. polio syndrome sufferers).


Clinicians should consider on an individual basis the clinical needs of patients including individuals with cerebral palsy, multiple sclerosis and related or similar conditions; or hereditary and degenerative disease of the nervous system or muscles; or severe neurological disability.


Diabetes aged six months or older


Type 1 diabetes, type 2 diabetes requiring insulin or oral hypoglycaemic drugs, diet controlled diabetes.


Immunosuppression aged six months or older


Immunosuppression due to disease or treatment. Patients undergoing chemotherapy leading to immunosuppression. Asplenia or splenic dysfunction, HIV infection at all stages. Individuals treated with or likely to be treated with systemic steroids for more than a month at a dose equivalent to prednisolone at 20mg or more per day (any age) or for children under 20kg a dose of 1mg or more per kg per day. It is difficult to define at what level of immuno suppression a patient could be considered to be at a greater risk of the serious consequences of flu and should be offered flu vaccination. This decision is best made on an individual basis and left to the patient’s clinician. Some immunocompromised patients may have a suboptimal immunological response to the vaccine. Consideration should also be given to the vaccination of household contacts of immunocompromised individuals, i.e. individuals who expect to share living accommodation on most days over the winter and therefore for whom continuing close contact is unavoidable. This may include carers (see below).


Pregnant women


Pregnant women at any stage of pregnancy (first, second or third trimesters).


Those living in long-stay residential care homes or other long-stay care facilities where rapid spread is likely to follow introduction of infection and cause high morbidity and mortality


Does not include prisons, young offender institutions, university halls of residence etc.


Unpaid Carers and young carers


Someone who, without payment, provides help and support to a partner, child, relative, friend or neighbour, who could not manage without their help. This could be due to age, physical or mental illness, addiction or disability.  A young carer is a child or young person under the age of 18 carrying out significant caring tasks and assuming a level of responsibility for another person, which would normally be taken by an adult.
