  • If you are in an at-risk group, it may be recommended that you have a seasonal flu vaccination. Make sure that you are registered with a GP practice as soon as possible to receive an invitation.
  • If you are a healthcare student, you will need additional vaccinations.
  • If you are unsure whether you have had any of these vaccinations, please ask your GP surgery.

If you did not get immunised before leaving for University, you can register with a new GP practice and contact them for further information.
