Vaccination is still the best way to avoid catching flu.

As well as booking up to get your flu jab at your local doctor's you can also get free NHS flu jabs at Ian Littler Pharmacy in Tarvin if you are aged between 18-64 years of age and in a clinical at risk group e.g.



  • chronic respiratory disease ASTHMA
  • chronic obstructive pulmonary disease COPD
  • chronic heart disease
  • chronic kidney disease
  • chronic liver disease
  • chronic neurological disease
  • diabetes
  • pregnant


This service has been commissioned by NHS England, Cheshire, Warrington, &Wirral

The chemist also has a private service available to patients aged 16 years or over at a cost of £10. Ask in the chemist for details as vaccinations are in full swing already

There is a lot of information around giving you further help in choosing the vaccine that should be appropriate for members of the family of all ages.
I am a great believer in spending a little time looking at some background information to help me ask sensible questions of my GP or pharmacist if needed.
A general site on Vaccine knowledge produced by the University of Oxford gives some clear explanations on the types of vaccines. A particularly interesting and interactive presentation to guide you as to what should be done, produced by the NHS can be accessed here
