Influenza (Flu)

FLU VACCINATION 2020

Walk in Flu clinic for 65s and over and 18 years to 64 in a Clinical "at risk" group except Children will be held on:

Saturday 10th October 2020 between 09.00am to 12 noon.

Please note that people in the 50 to 64 year old age group will not be vaccinated until November and December, providing there is sufficient vaccine, and no appointments will be offered for this age group until then. This is to ensure that those who are most at risk are vaccinated first.  If you are 50 to 64 and you are in one of the other groups which is eligible for the flu vaccination, for example you have a health condition which puts you at risk from the flu, you will be invited earlier.

Please also note that GPs are not to vaccinate this age group until the clinically at risk have been done. This means that no 50 to 64 year old (other than those who are in the clinical at risk group) should be invited to attend for a vaccine until there is confirmation from the national team that there is vaccine supply for this group.

If you have any queries please contact the London Immunisation Team directly at england.londonimms@remove-this.nhs.net

What is Flu?

Flu, short for influenza, is an infectious and common viral illness spread by coughs and sneezes.

It's not the same as the common cold. Flu is caused by a different group of viruses. Symptoms tend to be more severe and last longer.

You can catch flu all year round, but it is especially common in winter, which is why it is also known as "seasonal flu".

For more information see Influenza (Flu) on the NHS Website
