Seasonal Flu

This year, we are running our flu clinics differently to ensure that we are COVID safe.

The first batch of vaccinations delivered will be for ages 65 and over year group.

😷 We will only be giving the seasonal flu vaccination at the clinic – if you need a consultation with a doctor or nurse, please telephone during surgery hours

😷 Please be assured that we will be operating a social distance queuing system and strict infection control measures to reduce the risk of COVID-19

😷 Be prepared to queue outside and dress appropriately for the weather

😷 No appointment is necessary but it is important that you tear off the slip below and bring it with you as proof of eligibility for the vaccination

😷 Please wear clothes which will make it easy for you to expose one of your shoulders

😷 Follow the instructions given by the receptionist who will direct you to the next available clinician

Remember to wear your face covering
