Flu vaccines for 50 to 64-year olds

There is some anecdotal evidence which suggests 50 to 64-year olds are trying to book for flu vaccines.

While it's great that there is already demand, we thought it might be helpful to share some copy for you to use on your websites and other channels which makes it clear that this age group will not be vaccinated until November at the earliest, and only then if there is vaccine available:

Please note that people in the 50 to 64-year-old age group will not be vaccinated until November and December, providing there is sufficient vaccine, and no appointments will be offered for this age group until then. This is to ensure that those who are most at risk are vaccinated first. If you are 50 to 64 and you are in one of the other groups which is eligible for the flu vaccination, for example you have a health condition which puts you at risk from flu, you will be invited earlier.
