People with a learning disability or mental illness


To support their needs, people with a mental illness or learning disability should visit their GP surgery to receive their free flu vaccine.

You may need to make an appointment. If you receive an invitation to get your free flu vaccine, please take up the opportunity.

From January 2, all adults eligible for the flu vaccine can drop in to one of our community vaccination clinics to boost their protection without an appointment.



To help protect the most vulnerable, people with a learning disability or mental illness will be offered a COVID-19 autumn booster.

Anyone eligible for a COVID-19 Autumn booster can now walk in to one of our vaccination centres to increase their protection against the virus this winter. Locations, dates and times of our clinics are available here.

If you have already received a letter with details of your booster appointment, you can stick to the date and time on your letter or choose to drop into a vaccination centre at an earlier date. If you choose to drop in, there is no need to contact us to cancel your appointment.
