  • chronic respiratory disease ASTHMA

  • 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 knowledgeproduced 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
