With the Coronavirus it is very important that all patients who are eligible for the flu vaccination have it. If you have not yet had your vacciation please contact the practice.
It is important that those patients who are eligible for a flu vaccination receive their injection as soon as possible in the season. If you are over 65 years old, or if you have a chronic condition (diabetes, asthma, COPD, heart disease, or have suffered from a stroke), or are currently pregnant, then it is recommended that you should have a flu vaccine. Children of certain ages are also eligible.
If you believe that you may be eligible then please call into the practice or telephone to book an appointment. It is also possible to attend the practice as a walk-in patient for your flu jab.
Please note that this year there is a separate vaccination for patients older than 65 years. Unfortunately there are currently some issues with the supply of these vaccines, however we are doing our best to ensure that we obtain enough for our patient population in a timely manner.
