Due to a particularly virulent strain of seasonal influenza circulating at the moment the GPs at The Weardale Practice advise anyone who is eligible to get your flu vaccination whilst stocks are still available. We can vaccinate patients up until March 2020.

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
