FLU Vaccination Clinics 2020


Flu clinics have been more challenging than ever this year with the addition of Covid 19 restrictions. We have also had the added complications of the ever changing Government guidelines.

 

We are pleased to say that our “socially distanced” clinics have been a great success so far with over with over 1200 patients having passed safely through the surgery for their flu vaccination.

 

If you are eligible for a flu vaccination from the NHS, you will receive a letter and be asked to book in to one of our designated flu clinics. We are adding additional dates to ensure the demand is met.

Please follow the instructions in the letter – call the designated phone number to book your appointment.

 

Anyone between the age of 6 months up to the age of 65 with a chronic disease such as diabetes, heart or kidney disease, chronic respiratory problems and lower immunity will receive a letter. Pregnant women and over 65’s are also entitled to a vaccine

 

If you do have difficulty with mobility please advise the reception when booking your appointment

 

We would appreciate your cooperation with regards to car parking.

To ensure the safety of our staff and our patients if at all possible please leave your car at home and park locally
