Flu Vaccination

Appointments are now available to book, please book via patient access or telephone the surgery. You will receive an invitation, we will be prioritising our most vulnerable patients, those with underlying health conditions and those over 65 years of age. The government announced that this year all 50-64 year olds will also be eligible. We will be vaccinating these patients at a later stage in the Autumn.

We anticipate the demand for vaccines will be high this year so we would encourage you to book early. Vaccines had to be ordered by the surgery in December 2019 before the coronavirus pandemic so unfortunately the quantity ordered was based on a normal flu season’s demand.
