The number of people eligible to receive the flu vaccination during the 2020-21 programme has been extended to include those aged 60-64 years old.

This section of the campaign was delayed to allow those most vulnerable people to be vaccinated initially, and to ensure there was sufficient stock of the vaccine.

Dates and locations of flu vaccination clinics for his group has now been organised.
