It is very important that you attend for your flu vaccine when invited. Flu vaccine is given annually to the following groups of patients:
- All those aged 65 years and over
- All those aged over 6 months in the following clinical risk groups:
- Chronic respiratory disease, including asthma
- Chronic heart disease
- Chronic renal disease
- Immunosuppression (due to disease or treatment, including asplenia or splenic dysfunction)

The flu immunisation is not a live vaccine; this means you cannot get the flu from the vaccine!
