This vaccine is now routinely offered to older people. It is given as a single injection to anyone aged 70. There is also a catch-up programme for those aged 79 and from September 2014, 78 and 79 year olds. You will only need this vaccine once.
If you are not in the above co-hort age group and you wish to have this vaccine, you will usually need to visit a private clinic. Private vaccination is likely to cost between £100-£200.
