Influenza Vaccine

In accordance with Department of Health guidelines, we recommend an influenza vaccination be given for patients aged 65 years or over and patients with asthma, diabetes, chronic heart, lung or kidney disease and residents of nursing and rest homes.  Health Care Workers and Carers should also have the influenza vaccination. The vaccination is available from October; please contact reception to make an appointment.

Pneumonia Vaccine

Everybody aged 65 and over should be immunised to help protect them against pneumococcal infection, which can cause diseases such as pneumonia, septicaemia (blood poisoning) and meningitis.

Most people will only need to have the vaccine once. You may need a second dose if you have certain conditions such as: a damaged spleen or no spleen, or problems with your kidneys.

Patients aged under 65 should also be immunised if they are at a higher risk from infection, such as those with other illnesses and medical conditions for example: serious heart conditions, severe breathing problems, severe kidney disease, long-term liver disease.

This vaccine can be administered anytime during the year.

Please consult your doctor or practice nurse if you have any queries, or pick up a leaflet in reception. www.immunisation.nhs.uk/Vaccines/Pneumococcal
