Flu can be a very unpleasant illness in children causing fever, stuffy nose, cough, sore throat, aching muscles and joints, and extreme tiredness, often lasting for several days. 

The programme will be extended over a number of years to include all children aged 2 to 16 years inclusive.

Why should my child have the flu vaccine?

  • The vaccine is given as a nasal spray and is easy to give and painless.
  • The vaccine contains weakened flu viruses to prevent them from causing flu, but allows your child to build up immunity, so if they come into contact with someone with flu they are unlikely to get ill.
  • Flu can be a nasty illness that can lead to a stay in hospital, especially for children with other medical conditions.
  • If your child gets flu they won’t be able to go to school/nursery for several days and will need to be cared for at home, meaning you may need to take time off work.
  • Protecting your child can stop the flu spreading to others, in particular to grandparents, who may be particularly at risk to flu.


Please telephone and book an appointment with the Nurse.

Studies show that Shingles affect many patients aged 70 and over. The severity can increase with age, can lead to hospitalisation and around 1 in every 1,000 cases is estimated to result in death for patients over 70. For 1 in 2 patients there will be an impact on sleep, daily activities and life enjoyment. Severe pain associated with Shingles can last for months or even years for some patients and this can be very difficult to manage.

By having the vaccination you will be significantly reducing your chances of developing Shingles.

Routine Shingles Vaccination programme

We are vaccinating patients who have not yet been vaccinated but reached the age of 70 on or after 1 September 2013.

Catch-Up Shingles Vaccination programme

We are vaccinating patients who are aged 78 years to 80 years and who have not previously had a Shingles vaccination.

To arrange your Shingles vaccination, please contact the Surgery and ask for an appointment with the Practice Nurse.
