You will be eligible to receive the flu vaccine if you meet any of the following criteria:

  • All patients aged 65 and over (defined as 65 or over on 31st March 2014).
  • Chronic respiratory disease (aged 6 months or older).
  • Chronic heart disease (aged 6 months or older).
  • Chronic kidney disease (aged 6 months or older).
  • Chronic liver disease (aged 6 months or older).
  • Chronic Neurological disease (aged 6 months or older).
  • Diabetes (aged 6 months or older).
  • Immunosuppression (aged 6 months or older).
  • People living in long-stay residential care homes or other long-stay care facilities where rapid spread is likely to follow introduction of infection and cause high morbidity and mortality.  This does not include, for instance, prisons, young offender institutions, or university halls of residence.
  • Pregnant women at any stage of pregnancy (first, second or third trimesters).
  • Those who are in receipt of a carer’s allowance, or those who are the main carer, or the carer of an elderly or disabled person whose welfare may be at risk if the carer falls ill. Please note – this category refers to individual carers entitled to a free flu vaccine on the NHS, not professional health and social care workers who should be vaccinated by their employers as part of an occupational health programme.
