Please contact reception to arrange your appointment of you are in one of the eligible groups.
If you are eligible for a flu vaccination we will shortly be contacting you to arrange an appointment. This year due to Covid-19 we are taking precautions to keep you safe; this includes removing the usual ‘drop in clinic’ and contacting you directly to book a suitable time slot. By using appointments we can manage smaller numbers of attendees at a time. We have also moved our Saturday clinics to the Rawling Road branch surgery to provide a one way walk through system enabling you to maintain social distance.
When you attend for your appointment please wear a mask or face covering if possible and it is preferred you come alone unless a chaperone is required. You will be greeted at the door by a member of our team and asked to sanitise your hands. We will then guide you to the next available nurse or health care assistant’s consulting room.
You should have the flu vaccine if you:
The flu vaccine is given to people who:
- are 65 and over (including those who’ll be 65 by 31 March the following year)

- receive a carer’s allowance, or are the main carer for an older or disabled person who may be at risk if you get sick
