https://www.nhs.uk/conditions/vaccinations/who-should-have-flu-vaccine/

Please note: 50-64 years old without a qualifying health condition – see NHS England message below

Please note that, if you are aged between 50 and 64 and not in a clinical at risk group, the earliest you will be offered a flu vaccination is November, providing there is sufficient vaccine.  No appointments will be offered for people in this age group until then. This is to ensure that those who are most at risk are vaccinated first.  If you are aged 50 to 64 and are in a clinical ‘at risk’ group which is eligible for the flu vaccination, for example you have a health condition which puts you at risk from the flu, you will be invited earlier. 

Patients 65 and over

There is a different vaccine for patients 65 and over, specifically designed for this age group. It is called Fluad.

Public Health England poster re 65 and over vaccination

Patients attending for ordinary GP or nurse appointments can be vaccinated during these if well enough at that time

Patients UNDER 65 and eligible due to clinical condition

The vaccine for eligible patients aged 18 to 64 is an Inactivated Quadrivalent vaccine (QIV)

Fluenz - is the live nasal flu vaccine for 2 to 3 year olds. Clinics have started and a waiting list in operation as stock arrives weekly due to this being a live vaccine.
