Flu Vaccines

All patients over the age of 65, and those with long standing conditions (also known as ‘Chronic Diseases’) affecting the heart/lungs/liver or nervous system, and those with diabetes, should have an annual influenza vaccine (‘flu jab’). It is also recommended for those in care homes, and people who are the carers for another individual. For full guidance on who should have a flu jab please click here.

Flu Clinics
We run a flu clinic for patients who need the flu jab, on two Saturday mornings each October. These are drop-in clinics, meaning you do not need an appointment. These are for the flu jabs only, and we are not able to discuss any other medical concerns at these clinics.

The clinics will be advertised nearer the time, at least one month prior to the clinic dates. Please look out for notice of these in the surgery, and on our website. If you are over 65, you will NOT receive a personal reminder letter about the flu jab: please remember to look out for news about the flu clinics.
