Flu Vaccination Update

Posted on:

We are able to vaccinate all adults eligible for the free NHS flu vaccine, as well as children born between 1 September 2017 and 31 August 2019 and children who are at a higher risk from flu because of an underlying medical condition, such as severe asthma or a weakened immune system.

We are not able to vaccinate the remaining school-aged children in the area, as they will be vaccinated at their school before the end of January.

Our flu vaccine clinics are arranged around deliveries, which are phased throughout the flu season. At the moment the practice does not have any vaccine available, but we are expecting a delivery in the coming weeks. Once clinics are arranged, eligible people will be contacted by the practice to book an appointment.

Please do not call about general flu vaccine appointments in the meantime.

If you do not wish to wait for us to contact you, many local community pharmacies are also able to offer the flu vaccine and, if you’re pregnant, you can contact your local maternity service.

There is enough flu vaccine for all eligible people to be vaccinated.
