Flu Campaign 2018-2019
There are 2 flu vaccines for adults which will be available for our patients this year.
- Patients aged 18-65 years will receive Quadrivalent vaccine.
- Patients aged over 65 years will receive Adjuvanted Trivalent vaccine (aTIV).
Derwent Practice will be following the guidelines from NHS England and will be offering these to our patients as we receive delivery of them throughout September, October and November.
The delivery to us is going to be phased this year and as such we are following the guidance from NHS England and will offer the aTIV (over 65 years) to patients at a higher risk first and then subsequently as the vaccines are delivered to the next groups of patients.
The process this year will be quite different to how we have previously delivered the flu vaccine at Derwent Practice.
Patients will receive notification via text, letter or on their repeat prescription when they are eligible to book for a flu vaccine.
