Flu season is upon us again! As in previous years, we are running special flu clinics here in the practice and are now taking appointments for the week beginning Monday 16th October. If you are over 65 or in one of the ‘at risk’ groups (e.g. diabetes, heart disease, chronic chest problems), we strongly recommend you come in for your vaccine. We will contact you by text or letter if you are eligible.
Children aged 2-5 years will also be entitled to a flu vaccination this year. This is given via a painless nasal spray. Again, we will contact you if your child is eligible and offer an appointment here in the practice.
If your child is at primary school they will be offered a vaccination at school. They will advise you directly of when their clinics are set up.
If you are unable to make our special flu clinics in October, there will be a catch-up date. The dates have yet to be announced so please check back soon for updates.
