The Department of Health recommends annual flu vaccination for the following patients:

  •  all patients aged 50 years and over
  •  patients aged six months to 64 years in clinical risk  groups eg patients with diabetes, asthma, impaired  immunity, high BMI
  •  pregnant women
  •  all children aged two to eight on 31 August each year
  •  those in long-stay residential care homes

The vaccination is manufactured each year in accordance with World Health Organisation guidance about the active strains of influenza virus and, for maximum benefit, it is recommended that vaccination is given in the early Autumn.
