Flu and Pneumonia Vaccination

The Department of Health now recommends that people aged 65 and over, and younger people in certain at risk groups (asthma, chronic bronchitis, heart problems, diabetes, kidney disease, neurological and degenerative disease) should be vaccinated for influenza each year.

They also recommend Pneumonia vaccination for all patients over 65 and younger people in certain at risk groups. This injection is a once-only dose of vaccine which can be given at the same time as the Influenza vaccine.
