Noticeboard

FLU

We are now taking bookings for flu vaccination. Please contact a member of the reception team if you are aged 65 and over or are between 18 and 64 and are routinely offered the flu vaccination.

Pregnant ladies and carers are also eligible please make contact to book.

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.
