This is the annual seasonal influenza vaccination which is recommended for any person aged 6 months and over who wishes to reduce the likelihood of becoming ill with influenza.

Influenza, or flu, is a highly contagious respiratory illness caused by influenza viruses. There are three main types of influenza virus that cause infection in humans – types A, B and C – and many sub-types or strains. Influenza can occur throughout the year, but influenza activity usually peaks in winter.

Influenza is a vaccine-preventable illness, but a new vaccine needs to be given each year because influenza viruses change (mutate) constantly. A new influenza vaccine is prepared each year to best match the strains predicted for the coming influenza season.
