Aged between 50 and 65 years?
Some patients have heard in the media that the Government intends to extend the flu vaccination programme to the over 50s (rather than over 65s or younger with certain risk factors). We are still awaiting confirmation about this from NHS England but have been told that such patients will not be vaccinated until all the over 65s have been done and that is likely to be December at the earliest.
