50+ Flu Vaccinations

The Government announced back in June that healthy 50-64 year olds would be eligible for the flu vaccine this year, they have now informed us that they are not yet ready to release the vaccine stocks for this group into surgeries to distribute.

Therefore, the vaccine for patients aged 50-64 without a qualifying long term health condition has been delayed again and we do not know at this stage when it will be available.

Timelines provided by the Government for this to happen are changing constantly and we will continue to update you as we receive the information.
