Influenza Vaccinations

Information for those aged 65 and over

This winter, people aged 65 and over are being offered a flu vaccine called Fluad. This is the best vaccine available for people in this age group because it contains an adjuvant that helps the immune system create a stronger response to the vaccine. 

Please see the attached document for further information.
