Important Information for Patients 65 years and over (only) regarding your flu vaccine
This year there is a major change to the national flu campaign which relates to all patients over 65 years. For this age group, we will be using a different vaccine than that used for younger adults.
It has been found that an ageing immune system may cause adults aged 65 and over, to have a lower immune response to traditional flu vaccines than that of younger adults.
In order to give you the best protection possible, there is a nationwide switch to a vaccine called Fluad (new to UK but already used throughout Europe, USA & Canada). This vaccine contains an ingredient proven to provide a much stronger immune response and will help your immune system boost the fight against flu.
In other words, although the traditional flu vaccines still provide good protection for those under 65 years, the new, Fluad vaccine will provide much better protection for our patients who are 65 yrs and over.
As this is a major change, the manufacturers of the new vaccine have quite a workload producing the numbers required but we have had confirmation that the first delivery will be on 12th September, so please book your vaccination now. We have ordered a vaccine for each and every one of you so would ask you to keep an eye on our website or on communications we send out, to find out the starting dates of clinics. We would also ask that you wait to have your immunisation at the surgery rather than elsewhere if at all possible.
