Patient Notice – Flu Vaccinations

Patient Notice – Flu vaccinations

As you may be aware, the Government has announced that a significant new group will be eligible for the free flu vaccine as people aged 50 to 64 will be invited later in the season for a vaccination.

As part of an unprecedented drive, a free flu vaccine will also be available to:

  • people who are on the shielded patient list and members of their household
  • all school year groups up to year 7
  • people aged over 65, pregnant women, those with pre-existing conditions including at-risk under 2s

Beacon Medical Group will be working with Public Health England and the Clinical Commissioning Groups on how we will deliver to these groups. Please be aware that we do not have any further information about this at this stage and will update our patients in due course.
