As autumn approaches in the coming months, now is the time to start thinking about getting the annual flu jab. The NHS flu programme in England typically offers the flu vaccine to those over the age of 65, pregnant women and those with existing health conditions or weakened immune systems. These groups will remain a high priority this year. Additionally, the free jab will be offered to more people amidst concerns around the still-present coronavirus.
We will be holding our Flu Clinics over the next few months. Due to the current COVID-19 situation they will operate in a slightly different way to previous years to protect our patients and staff. Patients will be sent a text message giving all the details regarding attendance at the clinic
All eligible patients will be notified by the Practice via a text message or letter. Appointments for flu vaccine can be booked online.

Flu Jabs for patients aged 50-64
Clinics for the new 2020 cohort of eligible patients aged 50-64, who do not have an ‘at risk condition’ (see NHS UK) will follow soon. These dates and times will be announced on our website.
