Flu Vaccination

What does Frome Medical Practice offer? 

The flu vaccination is available every year on the NHS to help protect adults and children at risk of flu and its complications.

The flu vaccine is routinely given on the NHS to:

  • adults 65 and over
  • people with certain medical conditions (including children in at-risk groups from 6 months of age)
  • pregnant women
  • children aged 2 and 3 on 31 August 2019
  • children in primary school
  • frontline health or social care workers

(This information is correct for the Winter 2019 flu vaccination programme.)

Frome Medical Practice offers a series of flu vaccination clinics each year.

The specific flu vaccination clinics have now all taken place for 2019 but you can still make an appointment to visit the Practice for your vaccination. Pre-booking is essential.
