Flu vaccine update

You may be asked to wait a bit longer for your free flu vaccine this year. This is because we have seen unusually high early demand for the flu vaccination and have used up the first delivery of the vaccine for some groups.

Please be reassured that there is enough flu vaccine for everyone who is eligible to get vaccinated before the flu season starts, which is usually in December.

There are several types of flu vaccines available and these are recommended for you based on your age. Healthcare organisations are required to give the you the most effective vaccine for your age group and are unable to offer other types of flu vaccine if they are in stock.

The flu vaccine is delivered in batches during the flu season and a new supply will be recieved shortly.
