Flu & pneumococcal vaccines

Flu and pneumococcal vaccines are routinely given by the nurses. We offer them to those who are over 65 and to those with chronic diseases such as diabetes, asthma, heart disease, kidney or liver disease or cancer.

Flu vaccines for the year tend to become available in the late autumn and are only effective for that season. So, every year we run special flu clinics to vaccinate all those who need it during this season. Your doctor might also give you this during your routine appointment. Pneumococcal vaccinations are available all year round and are again offered to patients who are over 65 with chronic diseases.
