Influenza immunizations are offered to at-risk patients annually (late autumn). Patients of all ages with asthma, diabetes, heart disease or any chronic chest disease should consider an annual influenza vaccination. All patients over 65 years and patients who are pregnant are also advised to have influenza immunization. Pneumococcal vaccination is also offered to patients over 65 years. This vaccine is only required once and gives lifetime protection.
