2020 Flu Vaccination Clinics
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic we WILL NOT be offering walk-in clinics this year. All appointments will be PRE-BOOKED appointments. Dates are currently available for those aged 65 and over (by 31/3/21) and those 18 - 64yrs in the 'at risk' group. Nasal vaccines are also available for 2 & 3 year olds (1/9/16 - 31/8/18) and those 12 - 17 yrs in the 'at risk' group. Please contact reception via askmyGP or telephone to book your appointment.
We are aware that the Government intends to immunise patients over 50, however no additional stocks of vaccines have been allocated as yet. Therefore, these patients will be offered immunisation at a later date to be advised.
When attending your appointment:
Please wear a face covering and sanitise your hands
Wear appropriate clothing (there will be no modestiy screens)
