     web banner

              This year, three types of flu vaccine will be used in the flu Programme

             

 

Adjuvanted trivalent flu vaccine (aTIV)

For 65 years and over. The deliveries of aTIV to practices and pharmacies will be staged and in general not available until October and November. NHS England have issued guidance to confirm Flu season does not start until December therefore is it   acceptable to wait until November to have the flu vaccination. There is also limited supply of this vaccine due to manufacture issues therefore we have agreed for the local pharmacies listed below to provide vaccinations for our patients aged between 65 and 74years. When you attend please inform the pharmacist you are registered at St Luke’s Surgery
