- Need regular asthma inhalers
- Have chronic chest problems
- Suffer from angina or heart problems

We also offer the pneumococcal vaccination to everyone who needs a flu vaccination. This is a single injection to protect you from pneumococcal pneumonia and this injection will last for some years.
Other people who should have the vaccine every year are people with:
- No spleen
- Celiac disease
- Lung fibrosis
- Long-term steroid treatment
- Kidney problems
We commence vaccinations against flu every October. Please give your name into reception to enable us to contact you if you wish to be vaccinated as soon as the vaccine arrives. Names are taken in August ready for OCTOBER. If you do not enter your name, you may be unable to obtain a vaccine, as only a limited number are available.
