2019/20 FLU CLINICS

16 September 2019

Flu Season is here – As with last year, we have been asked to give different vaccinations to patients under 65 who are in an “at risk” group and patients over 65 years old.  This is a result of clinical trials testing the impact of each vaccine in different age groups. 

Due to the World Health Organisation (WHO) taking a decision to delay the selection of strains to be included by one month there has been an effect on the manufacturing and delivery times for the vaccine for patients under 65 in an at risk group.   Deliveries are expected during October and November so clinics will be arranged accordingly and we will update you when they are available to be booked.
