Flu Vaccinations 2018

Updated information on this years flu vaccination programme

Flu vaccinations

We are pleased to confirm that we are now taking bookings for flu jabs for all patient groups that qualify for the jab .

We recommend you telephone the surgery on 0113 2953600 after 10am to book.

This year NHS England have recommended different flu vaccines for patients aged Under 65 and patients aged Over 65. You can read more about this on the NHS Website and at Public Health England.

Some patients Over 65 have had to wait a few weeks longer than usual this year as vaccine deliveries have been spread over the months of September, October and November. This means that around half of the flu jabs we give to patients aged over 65 this year will be given in November.

All patients over 65 should be reassured, a flu jab is reserved for you and is available now. It takes approximately 2 weeks after having the jab to build up the required immunity, therefore all patients will have been vaccinated in plenty of time for the annual flu season.l
