Seasonal Flu Vaccination

Influenza – flu – is a highly infectious and potentially serious illness caused by influenza viruses. Each year the make-up of the seasonal flu vaccine is designed to protect against the influenza viruses that the World Health Organization decide are most likely to be circulating in the coming winter.

Regular immunisation (vaccination) is given free of charge to the following at-risk people, to protect them from seasonal flu:

  • patients aged 65+
  • patients aged 6-65 in the following risk groups:
  • chronic heart disease
  • chronic kidney disease
  • chronic liver disease
  • chronic neurological disease (stroke/TIA)
  • immunosuppressed
  • Asthma (if uses steroid inhalor or had previous hospital admissions)
  • Pregnant women (see below)
  • Residential Homes
  • Carers
  • Children aged 2, 3 and 4 years old on or after 01/09/2014 (DOB within 02/09/2009 to 01/09/2012)

Pregnant women & the Flu Vaccination

It is recommended that all pregnant women should have the flu vaccine, whatever stage of pregnancy they’re in. This is because there is good evidence that pregnant women have an increased risk of developing complications if they get flu, particularly from the H1N1 strain.

Studies have shown that the flu vaccine can be safely and effectively given during any trimester of pregnancy. The vaccine does not carry risks for either the mother or baby. In fact, studies have shown that mothers who have had the vaccine while pregnant pass some protection to their babies, which lasts for the first few months of their lives.
