Flu Vaccines

All patients over the age of 65, and those with long-standing conditions (also known as ‘Chronic Diseases’) affecting the heart/lungs/liver or nervous system, and those with diabetes, should have an annual influenza vaccine (‘flu jab’). It is also recommended for those in care homes, and people who are the carers for another individual. For full guidance on who should have a flu jab please click here.

Flu Clinics
Once our clinic sessions have been arranged for 2013 they will be shown here.

The clinics will be advertised nearer the time, at least one month prior to the clinic dates. Please look out for notice of these in the surgery, and on our website. If you are over 65, you will NOT receive a personal reminder letter about the flu jab: please remember to look out for news about the flu clinics.
