Flu vaccinations - support us to support you!

If you are eligible for a free flu vaccination we will be inviting you in for you vaccine in a slightly different way this year.  Because some of you will be higher risk than others we will be prioritising who we see when.  Please wait for either an email, text, letter or phone call from us to book in.

Organising the flu clinics is very costly and we have already bought and paid for a vaccination for you if you are eligible.  We would really appreciate it if you supported us and have  your vaccine done with us; we are in a safe controlled environment with all the necessary PPE, social distancing rules and we have immediate access to your medical records should the need arise.

We do NOT ask any other organisations e.g.supermarket, chemists to do the flu vaccine on our behalf as this takes funding away from us.  We have doctors, nurses, reception and admin staff all prepared to come in during weekends so we can offer you a first class service and ensure you are safe to the best of our ability.
