Seasonal Flu Vaccinations 2022

The Flu vaccine ARE STILL  available. Please go online and book your flu appointment via patient access or the NHS app if you are in correct age or risk groups.

The flu vaccine is offered free of charge on the NHS to people who are at risk or over 50. This is to ensure they are protected against catching flu and developing serious complications. This year is even more important to be protected against the influenza.

Flu vaccine for adults can be given at the surgery or by your local chemist.

Children’s vaccine can only be done at the surgery or via school. Please check below where they will get their vaccine from.

When coming into the surgery for your flu vaccination, we will ask you to wear a mask and adhere to social distancing. If you are unwell with a fever or cough, please cancel your appointment and rebook when you are better. Do NOT attend the surgery.

Please wear a short sleeved top for easy access to your arm. Many patients will have appointments booked for flu vaccination so we will want to move carefully but quickly through the surgery.
