Flu Vaccinations 2021/22

Book your flu vaccination NOW either online or by contacting the reception team.

As a result of the COVID-19 pandemic this year there will NOT be the usual walk-in Flu Clinics but instead all flu vaccinations will be by appointment only.

All eligible patients will receive an invite by letter or text. When you receive your invite, book an on-line appointment in one of our flu immunisation clinics.

If you do not have access to online appointments please ring the practice to book an appointment. . We will be releasing clinics gradually as the demand for appointments increases.  Please note some clinic dates may be cancelled depending on demand.

Please do not arrive more than 10 minutes before your appointment time. Do not bring anyone with you unless they are your carer/helper or they have an appointment for a flu immunisation.  All our staff will be wearing the appropriate levels of PPE.  Please bring a mask and wear clothing that makes it easy to access your arm. 

We will also advise you at the same time if you are eligible to be vaccinated against shingles and/or pneumonia and we can offer to do this at the same time.

Please do not attend if you have any Coronavirus symptoms
