Flu Campaign 2020 /2021

Our winter flu campaign will be starting again soon…..with a difference!

Please do not telephone the surgery to enquire about flu vaccinations. We will contact all eligible patients in writing and our most at-risk patients will be invited first.

Your invite will contain important changes to our clinics, so please read it very carefully. Please be assured that we will be operating a socially distanced queuing system with strict infection control measures to reduce the risk of COVID-19.

The new 50-64 patient group should expect their invites later in the year.

If you receive an invitation and you are unable to attend the slot given, do not call us. Simply visit your local pharmacy to receive it.
