Flu Vaccinations

Due to the high number of people eligible for the flu vaccination this year we are doing the clinics over multiple days. These are not walk in clinics and you must not just turn up.

The following groups will receive a letter inviting them to one of these clinics:

  • over 65s
  • 18 - 65 year olds with certain long-term medical conditions such as asthma and diabetes
  • 18 - 65 year olds who are at high risk regarding COVID-19

The following groups will not receive a letter inviting them to the clinics and will instead need to book an appointment - these appointments will be available from 1st October:

  • healthcare workers and carers
  • pregnant women
  • people living in the same house as someone high risk
  • children between 2 - 18 that are high risk

People aged 50 - 64 are also entitled to the flu vaccination this year but will this be subject to availability and will be contacted at a later date.

Thank you for your cooperation.

We are asking our patients and their representatives only to attend the surgery if you:

  • Need to collect medication
  • You have been asked to attend by your Doctor or Nurse
