This Flu Season the Public Health Agency have recommended different vaccines for those aged 65+ compared to those aged under 65.

Supply of this vaccine however is limited and supply to surgeries will be staggered over the coming months.

Due to these delivery restrictions Public Health Agency have stated that those aged 75+ should be prioritised to receive this vaccine first as supply allows.

The 65-74 age group will be invited when further flu vaccines become available.

This should be before the end of November.
