Flu vaccination

Who can have the vaccine?

We'll usually send you a text message if you need to have the vaccination.

You can get the vaccine for free if you're:

  • 65 or over
  • from 18 to 64, with an underlying health condition
  • pregnant
  • a carer
  • working in the health and social care sector
  • living with someone who is more likely to get infections

There is also a free children's flu vaccine which is offered to children who are:

  • aged 2 to 3 years old
  • school aged (from Reception to Year 11)
  • at risk because they have long-term health conditions

If you think you, or your child, need the vaccine but are not in one of these groups, please contact us. We may still be able to give you the vaccine.
