Flu Clinics

Flu clinics now set up from Wednesday 30th September. If you are eligible for a flu vaccination please contact the reception to book an appointment.

Seasonal flu is a highly infectious illness caused by a flu virus.

The virus infects your lungs and upper airways, causing a sudden high temperature and general aches and pains.

You could also lose your appetite, feel nauseous and have a dry cough. Symptoms can last for up to a week.

We offer ‘at risk’ groups the flu vaccine at a certain time each year to protect you against the flu virus.

You may be invited for a flu jab if you are:

  • over 65 years of age
  • pregnant
  • or have:

o    a serious heart or chest complaint, including asthma and COPD

o    serious kidney disease

o    diabetes

o    lowered immunity due to disease or treatment such as steroid medication or cancer treatment

o    if you have ever had a stroke

  • ALL healthy children who are aged 2, 3 and 4 years old – this is in the form of a nasal spray.

Our Flu Clinics can now be booked.

If you have any queries please contact the surgery.
