  • The routine cohort for those aged 70 in 2016/17 is defined by the patient’s age on 1st September 2016. Those born between 2 September 1945 and 1 September 1946 should be offered the vaccine in the 2016/17 routine programme.


  • The catch-up cohort for those aged 76, 77 and 78 in 2016/17 are defined by the patient’s age on 1st September 2016. Those born between 2 September 1937 and 1 September 1940 should be offered vaccine in the 2016/17.


As there is a limited supply of vaccine we will be phoning and arranging appointments for patients in the above age groups.
