The Department of Health has made changes to how the flu programme is delivered this year.

 

There are 3 different flu vaccines available for different age groups, we have been instructed to:

 

Children - No change to previous years.

 

Patients aged under the age of 65 with a chronic disease such as Diabetes, COPD, Heart Disease, Pregnant ladies etc. Are to be given the Quadrivalent Flu injection.  We have been instructed by our suppliers that these will be delivered by 17th September and we will start clinics that week.

 

Patients aged 65 and over - Will be given the Trivalent Flu injection, although there are limited stocks we have received part of our order and they are available now, we are expecting more in November.  Please note due to these specific instructions we will not be able to vaccinate the over 65s with the Quadrivalent vaccine.

 

We apologise for any inconvenience these changes may cause and would like to reassure patients that we will vaccinate all patients as soon as possible.

 

For further information please see the Department of Health Flu for Winter 2018 information leaflet in the Our Documents section of this website.
