Seasonal Flu Vaccination 2021/22

Flu can be unpleasant, but if you’re otherwise healthy, it’ll usually clear up on its own in about a week.

This year the flu vaccine is being offered on the NHS to:

Help Us Help You
  • adults 50 and over
  • people with certain medical conditions (including children in at-risk groups from 6 months of age. See list below)
  • pregnant women
  • people living with someone who’s at high risk from coronavirus (on the NHS shielded patient list)
  • children aged 2 and 3
  • are the main carer for someone

The main conditions eligible for the flu vaccine are:

  • diabetes
  • heart disease or health failure
  • kidney disease
  • stroke or TIA
  • asthma which has required treatment in the past year or has resulted in an admission to hospital in the past two years
  • chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD) and other significant respiratory conditions
  • dementia and other significant neurological conditions
  • liver disease
  • immunocompromised due to a medical condition or treatment
  • body mass index (BMI) of 40 or more (if deemed clinically appropriate by a clinician)
  • you live in long term nursing or residential home

Anyone in these risk groups is more likely to develop potentially serious complications of flu, such as pneumonia (a lung infection), so it’s recommended that they have a flu vaccine every year to help protect them.

If you, or a dependent of yours, is aged six months or older and falls in one of the groups above (or you have received a flu vaccination invitation letter you will be eligible for the flu vaccination). The vaccine offers you the best possible protection against the main flu strains in circulation this winter.
