The Northeast has seen a steady rise in cases of invasive pneumococcal disease since 2013. The majority of cases occurred in people who had not received the Pneumococcal vaccination. Some people are at higher risk of serious illness and can be given the pneumococcal vaccination on the NHS. These include:

Babies
Adults aged 65 or over
Children and adults with certain long-term health conditions, such as a serious heart or kidney condition.

While we are happy to offer this vaccinate alongside the annual flu jab, you can have the Penumococcal vaccination at any time of the year and we keep a stock at all times. Unlike the flu jab, in most cases you will not need to repeat the vaccination.  So if you believe you are eligible for a vaccination make an appointment with a Practice Nurse, or just ask when you have your next routine appointment with a Practice Nurse.
