Flu Vaccinations

You can now book your appointment for a flu vaccination. Appointments are available from Monday 24th September 2018. Please contact the surgery to book your appointment.

Eligible patients:

  • All people aged 65 years and over (including those becoming age 65 years by 31st March 2019);

Please note if you are 65 and over you will be offered a flu vaccine, here at the surgery, that is usually given to those patients aged 64 and under. This is the quadrivalent flu vaccine and contains 4 strains of flu. The trivalent flu vaccine that is recommended for patients over 65 contains 3 strains of flu. The reason we can only offer the quadrivalent flu vaccine is due to national shortage. If you wish to have the recommended trivalent flu vaccine there are other providers. For further information please see https://www.nhs.uk/conditions/vaccinations/who-should-have-flu-vaccine/
