The influenza vaccination is developed yearly and is an annual vaccination against seasonal flu. The influenza vaccination is offered to a number of NHS patients free of charge (i.e. if you are over 65, have certain long term conditions, work with vulnerable people, are pregnant) and you will be contacted by text or letter inviting you to have the vaccine (please help us contact you by providing your up to date mobile phone number). If you are not eligible for a free vaccine on the NHS, the NHS rules unfortunately prevent us from charging for the vaccine although you can obtain this at some pharmacies as a private vaccine (there is usually a small fee).
The pneumococcal vaccine protects against serious and potentially fatal pneumococcal infections. The vaccination is available routinely to people aged over 65 and you will receive an invite from the surgery when you become eligible. You only need a single pneumococcal vaccination, which will protect for life. It is not given annually like the flu jab.
Shingles, also known as herpes zoster, is an infection of a nerve and the skin around it. It’s caused by the varicella-zoster virus, which also causes chickenpox. It’s not always possible to prevent shingles, but a vaccine called Zostavax can reduce your chances of developing the condition. This vaccine is now routinely offered on the NHS as a single injection to people aged 70 and 78. You will receive a routine invite when you are eligible for the Shingles Vaccination.
