Flu vaccination

If you are eligible for flu vaccination on the NHS please book an appointment with one of our nursing team. Vaccination is advised between September & February each year for patients in specific high-risk groups.

You must be in one of the following categories to be eligible to receive Flu vaccination free from the NHS:

  • Carer (this means you look after a relative, friend or neighbour in Leeds who cannot manage without your help due to sickness, age or disability)
  • Chronic heart disease
  • Chronic liver disease
  • Chronic neurological disease (such as Epilepsy)
  • Chronic renal disease
  • Chronic respiratory disease (such as Asthma). (When you come for a flu vaccination if we have not prescribed your asthma medicine for you before, you must bring either your asthma medicines or your repeat medication list with you so we can be certain you are eligible to be given a vaccination on the NHS)
  • Diabetes
  • Health and Social Care workers
  • Long-stay residential care home residents
  • Pregnant (or recently been pregnant)
  • Weakened immune system (such as Coeliac Disease, or on certain medicines)

Anyone older than six months, with one of the conditions on the list above, is eligible for free NHS flu vaccination (children aged two or three – 1/09/14 to 31/08/16 – will be offered a nasal spray as an alternative to an injection).

Children two or three – 1/09/14 to 31/08/16 – who do not have one of the conditions on the list above are eligible to receive free NHS flu immunisation with a nasal spray – this is part of the NHS Childhood Immunisation Programme

Patients who do not fulfil the eligibility criteria above, but want to be vaccinated, can choose to attend a high street pharmacy (such as Boots, Superdrug, Lloyds), where they can pay for the vaccination, and receive it there.
