Free Flu Vaccination for over 50s

Please note the following announcement from the Welsh Government. We are currently compiling a database of eligible patients and we will be contacting them in due course. We are kindly requesting that patients bear with us and refrain from contacting us about this matter in the meantime.

The Welsh government have today announced that this year GP practices across Wales will be able to offer a free flu vaccination to all patients aged between 50 and 64.

The Minister for Health and Social Services, Vaughan Gething, said,

“This winter more and more people in Wales are taking-up the offer of a free flu vaccine. We have made great progress to protect the most vulnerable in our community and a further 460,000 people in Wales will now be able to benefit from the protection the vaccine offers them and our NHS services.”

“Extending the flu vaccine to everyone aged 50 or over will help prevent more people becoming ill and reduce pressure on the NHS this winter. I would urge anyone who is eligible to follow the example of the huge numbers of people vaccinated already and have the vaccine.”
