Wales announces largest ever flu vaccine programmeWales announces largest ever flu vaccine programme

More people will benefit from the free flu vaccine programme this year in Wales.

Existing eligible groups - those aged over 65 years, pregnant women and people with medical conditions - will be vaccinated first. The Welsh Government says increasing uptake in health and social care workers will be a key priority this season.

Subject to confirmation by the UK Government that additional vaccine supply will be available, those who will also be included in this year's programme include:

  • households of people in the shielded group
  • lowering the eligibility age from 65 to over 50 year olds – who will be vaccinated in a phased approach

The NHS will contact those who are eligible.
