The flu vaccination will be divided by age and the clinics will reflect this - those aged over 65 and those aged 18 to 65. This is because of the difference in the vaccinations.

- People suffering from:-
- Asthma (not all asthmatics are eligible this is dependent on inhaler and asthma exacerbation history)
