NHS England issued advice earlier this year that two vaccinations should be offered for adults- the adjuvanted trivalent vaccine for age group 65 and over and the quadrivalent vaccine for ages 18- under 65 at risk. With nasal flu vaccine for children ages 2-3.


People who should have the flu vaccine

You should have the flu vaccine if you:

  • Are 65 years of age or over
  • Are pregnant
  • Have certain medical conditions
  • Are living in long stay residential care home or other long stay care facility
  • Receive a carer’s allowance, or you are the main carer for an elderly or disabled person whose welfare may be at risk if you fall ill

Flu vaccine for people with medical conditions including:

  • chronic (long-term) respiratory diseases, such as asthma (which requires an inhaled or tablet steroid treatment, or has led to hospital admission in the past), chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), emphysema or bronchitis
  • chronic heart disease, such as heart failure
  • chronic kidney disease
  • chronic liver disease, such as hepatitis
  • chronic neurological conditions, such as Parkinson's disease, motor neurone disease or multiple sclerosis (MS)
  • diabetes
  • problems with your spleen – for example, sickle cell disease or if you have had your spleen removed
  • a weakened immune system as the result of conditions such as HIV and AIDS, or medication such as steroid tablets or chemotherapy
  • being seriously overweight (BMI of 40 or above)

This list of conditions isn't definitive. It's always an issue of clinical judgement.
