Flu Season 2018/19


NHS guidelines state that the following registered patients are eligible and it is recommended that they have a flu jab:

  • Patients with the following conditions: Respiratory Disease (such as COPD or for certain Asthmatics), Heart Disease, Kidney Disease, Liver Disease, Neurological Disease (such as past history of a stroke), Diabetes, Immunosuppression
  • All pregnant women at any stage of pregnancy
  • Carers
  • Children who are 2, 3 years (nasal flu vaccine)   
  • Over 65 year old                    


Without a seasonal flu jab eligible patients will be at risk of developing serious complications from catching flu, such as pneumonia. Most people are completely fine after a flu jab, but you can sometimes get a sore arm, mild fever or chills. These symptoms usually settle within a few days and since the injection does not contain any live virus, contrary to popular belief, it cannot give you flu!
