Citywide Health’s 2023/24 flu vaccination service will be operating across York from early September. The FREE NHS service is open to all patients over 65 years of age, or anyone over 18 in an eligible group. All eligible patients can access a flu vaccination, irrespective of which GP surgery they are registered with, or which pharmacy they normally use.
In order to manage the flu vaccination workload alongside our current pharmacy services, we have introduced an online booking system. Simply click on the link below, choose you local Citywide Health Pharmacy or clinic, and book the type of flu vaccination required.
The free NHS flu vaccine is given to people who:
- are 65 and over (including those turning 65 by 31 March 2024)
- have certain health conditions (such as asthma, diabetes, chronic heart or kidney disease)
- are pregnant
- are in a long-stay residential care
- receive a carer’s allowance, or are the main carer for an older or disabled person who may be at risk if you get sick
Unlike previous years, the free NHS service is not available to those aged 50 – 64 who are healthy and not in the risk groups mentioned above – these patients can still chose to access a private vaccination.
We also operate a PRIVATE FLU VACCINATION SERVICE for those who do not qualify for a free NHS flu vaccination. This is available to anyone over the age of 2 years and can be booked at any of our pharmacies, again using the links below.
