NHS Flu Information

 

Who is eligible for the flu vaccination?

Groups eligible for influenza vaccinations are based on the advice of the Joint Committee on Vaccination and Immunisation (JCVI). The programme aims to provide direct protection to those who are at higher risk of influenza associated morbidity and mortality and to reduce transmission to all age groups through the vaccination of children.

You will usually be administered the vaccine recommended by the JCVI. Please follow this link to see the approved vaccines for this year.

All frontline health care workers, including both clinical and non-clinical staff who have contact with patients, should be offered the influenza vaccine to protect themselves and those they care for. Social care workers who are in direct contact with people who receive care and support services should also have the influenza vaccine provided by their employer. This should be provided by their employer as part of the organisation’s policy to prevent the transmission of infection. 

 

Cohorts that were eligible in the 2022 to 2023 season but that are not included in the cohorts for 2023 to 2024 are:

  • Those aged 50 to 64 years that are not in an ‘at risk’ category.
