FLU CLINICS:

Please see the NHS Website for more guidance: https://www.nhs.uk/conditions/vaccinations/flu-influenza-vaccine/

We are holding flu clinics at the Surgery in October, for those who are eligible. If you have received a text message, please book using the link, or call the Surgery. If you are over 65, you can have your flu vaccine at any participating Pharmacy. If you are under 65, you will need to show your eligibility text message/letter. Not all Pharmacies are doing under 65's, so we recommend ringing in advance. 

Starting from mid-October, people aged 50 years old or over (including those who will be 50 years old by 31 March 2023) can have a free NHS flu vaccine. This is so at-risk groups can be offered vaccination first. A local Pharmacy will be able to do that for you. Alternatively, you can wait to be invited by the Surgery, to have it done with one of our clinicians.

FLU JABS:  Make sure you get your Flu vaccination if you are:  65 and over and an adult with chronic illness such as: heart, kidney or lung disease, asthma or diabetes
