Flu Vaccinations

We have flu vaccinations available; please call the practice to book your appointment.

Having a flu vaccine does not give you the flu and it is safe to have a vaccine.

Please ensure that you are eligible for a flu vaccine before attending the surgery for your flu jab. For any queries, please contact the practice. It is very important that you book the correct clinic for your age as there are different vaccines for under 65s and over 65s.
