The injected flu vaccine is offered free of charge on the NHS to people who are at risk. This is to help protect them against catching flu and developing serious complications.
You should have the flu vaccine if you:
- are 65 years of age or over
- are pregnant
- have certain medical conditions
- are living in a long-stay residential care home or other long-stay care facility
- receive a carer's allowance, or you are the main carer for an elderly or disabled person whose welfare may be at risk if you fall ill
We will be holding walk-in clinics for all patients in an at risk group and those aged 65+ on:
- Saturday 6th October 2018 - 8-11.30am
- Saturday 3rd November 2018 - 8-11.30am
There is no need to book an appointment, please come along.
If you cannot make either Saturday, please contact us to arrange an appointment during the week from the start of October.
For 2 and 3 year olds - you will receive a letter inviting you to arrange an appointment - clinics will be held in surgery from 20th October.
Children in Years 1-5 will be vaccinated in school not at the surgery.
