- FLU VACCINATION PROGRAM 2018
- You may be aware that the seasonal flu vaccination programme is being offered to all patients over the age of 65 this year. However, for the first time this year NHS England recommends a different vaccine for this age group. This is currently only supplied by one national supplier and therefore has led to shortages in supplies generally. NHS England has advised us to recommend that, in the first instance, you contact your local pharmacy who may have secured supplies of the ‘aTIV’ vaccine. In the event that this vaccine is not available at your pharmacy, the Practice is able to offer you an alternative vaccine offering similar protection to previous years and we would recommend you have this vaccine rather than having no protection at all.
