I’ve recently joined this community. I’m a 41 year old female, and in September 2021 had a non-aneurysmal subarachnoid haemorrhage. I was extremely lucky to make an almost complete recovery.
I have a question regarding winter influenza vaccination eligibility. I live in Scotland and don’t appear to have been placed into the category of being eligible for any winter vaccinations by my GP. Is that who decides whether a person should be eligible?
Having read up about it, it appears to me that anyone who has had a stroke is entitled to an NHS funded flu vaccine. Does anyone know for definite if this is indeed the case?
I feel a bit of a fraud as I have recovered from my haemorrhage and am back to all my usual activities and life. But I’m keen to get vaccinated if I can.
Any help on this gratefully received. Thank you!
