    Patients who are eligible for a flu vaccine who are under the age of 65 years will be vaccinated with a Quadrivalent vaccine, again the most beneficial for patients in this age group

Children between the ages of 2-17 years in an 'at risk' group are eligible for a nasal flu vaccine and invitations will be sent out when dates for vaccine delivery are confirmed.

The Childrens' flu programme 2019/20 will be delivered as follows: 

    • Two and three years old (but not four years or older on 31.08.19) will be vaccinated at the surgery with the nasal spray

    • Children in reception class and school years Reception to Year 5 will be offered nasal vaccination in school.  The surgery is not commissioned to provide vaccinations for these children.

Please telephone the surgery with any flu vaccination queries you might have.

Sunnyside will always follow Public Health England Guidelines on inviting patients for the National Flu Vaccination Program.  We are not commissioned to administer vaccines to our patients outside of the Program  who may wish to pay for vaccination privately.  Patients wishing to pay for a private flu vaccination can attend another Practice or a Pharmacy to have this done.
