Flu Clinic

The annual campaign for vaccinations against flu usually take place from October - March (as long as stock lasts) for those age 65 and over as well as those living with certain long term conditions or in the ‘At Risk’ group of patients. Please contact the surgery to book an appointment. If you are unsure about qualifying, please ask at reception and they will be able to advise you.

‘At Risk' patients include:

    • chronic (long-term) lung disease

    • asthma (but only patients who have been prescribed asthma medication during the last 6 months)

    • chronic heart disease

    • chronic kidney disease

If you are over 65 and haven't had your pneumococcal vaccination, you will be offered this as well.
