Our walk in flu clinic was on 18.9.23, we encourage those who could not attend our clinic and still require a flu jab to attend the surgery during weekdays (avoiding between 12-1.30pm) and give reception your details, one of our nursing team will do your vaccine in between patients . As instructed by NHS England it is only adults +65 without a medical condition eligible for a vaccine, different to previous years where those 50-65 were eligable, this is not the case this year.
1st and 2nd vaccines are now only available for children aged 6 months to 4 years old high at risk
Children aged 6 months to 4 years old who are at increased risk of getting seriously ill from COVID-19 can get a 1st and 2nd COVID-19 vaccine.
