"Flu jab for older people"

My mother, who is elderly and home bound has for sometime received a flu jab. Since notification I have repeatedly tried to get a district nurse to come and administer the vaccination with no success. The reasons given by the Plympton Health Centre are 'sickness' and 'shortage of staff'. At 82 years of age I am concerned that without protection she is vulnerable to potential serious illness. Please can you help; we live in Plympton.
