Flu Vaccination Clinics *NOW BOOKING*
The practice offers flu vaccinations every year, available on the NHS to help protect adults & children at risk of flu and its complications throughout the Autumn & Winter months. Flu can be unpleasant, but if you are otherwise healthy it will usually clear up on its own within a week. However, flu can be more severe in certain people, such as anyone aged 65 and over, pregnant women & children and adults with an underlying health condition or weakened immune systems.
For 2018, there are 3 different types of flu vaccine and because of this, the practice is offering separate clinics for patients aged 65 and over, those eligible patients aged 18 to 65, and children aged 18 and under.
For those aged 65 and over, we are offering two clinics:
Sat 6th Oct 8.30 - 2pm
Sat 17th Nov 8.30 - 3pm
For those eligible aged between 18 and 65, we are offering a number of early evening clinics:
Tues 2nd Oct 4:30 - 6pm Mon 15th Oct 5 - 6pm
Weds 3rd Oct 4:30 - 6pm Tues 16th Oct 5 - 6pm
Mon 8th Oct 4:30 - 6pm Weds 17th Oct 5 - 6pm
Tues 9th Oct 4:30 - 6pm Mon 22nd Oct 3:30 - 4:50pm

As usual we will try to book all our appointments so that we can have solid blocks of booked appointments, so you will offered the next vacant appointment on the list. However, we will also take into account your other commitments and if the appointment offered is not convenient we will do our best to find a suitable alternative.
