Flu Vaccinations 2018/19

04 Sep 2018

Our campaign this year is a tad more complicated than usual given the Department of Health has asked us to use 3 different products for our patients in at risk groups:

  • For patients aged 65 and over we need to use a Trivalent Vaccine (3-in-1) provided by Seqirus
  • For patients aged 19 - 64 years of age we need to use a Quadrivalent Vaccine (4-in-1) provided by Sanofi Pasteur
  • For patients 2 - 18 years of age we need to use Fluenze Tetra (a nasal spray) provided by the Department of Health.
  • For the under 2s they receive a Quadrivalent Vaccine (4-in-1) provided by Sanofi Pasteur

For this reason we will be hosting single vaccine clinics. Letters will be sent to all eligible patients in the next 7 days.  Our clinics will commence week of 18.9.18 and will be determined by the volume of stock delivered - this is a scheduled delivery from September onwards. Please do bear in mind that our stock will determine how many patients we can vaccinate at any one time.
