Flu Vaccines 2013 - 2014
Flu vaccinations are currently offered free of charge to the following at-risk groups:
People aged 65 years or over (including those becoming age 65 years by 31 March 2014)
All pregnant women (including those women who become pregnant during the flu season)
People with a serious medical condition such as: chronic (long-term) respiratory disease, such as severe asthma, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) or bronchitis
chronic heart disease, such as heart failure
chronic kidney disease at stage 3, 4 or 5
chronic liver disease
chronic neurological disease, such as Parkinson’s disease or motor neurone disease
a weakened immune system due to disease (such as HIV/AIDS) or treatment (such as cancer treatment)
people living in long-stay residential care homes or other long-stay care facilities where rapid spread is likely to follow introduction of infection and cause high morbidity and mortality. This does not include, for instance, prisons, young offender institutions, or university halls of residence
people who are in receipt of a carer’s allowance, or those who are the main carer of an older or disabled person whose welfare may be at risk if the carer falls ill
The list above is not exhaustive and decisions should be based on a practitioner’s clinical judgement. Consideration should also be given to the vaccination of household contacts of immunocompromised individuals, specifically individuals who expect to share living accommodation on most days over the winter and therefore for whom continuing close contact is unavoidable.
Also recommended to be vaccinated as part of occupational health:
Health and social care workers with direct patient/client contact
Healthcare practitioners should refer to the Green Book influenza chapter for further guidance.
The practice introduced extended working hours from 2nd June 2008. For further details please see the Surgery Times page.
* Part-time salaried GP
