Flu Vaccines

WALK IN CLINIC THIS SUNDAY 30.1.22. Come to the surgery between 9-12am. Let the staff know that you are here for a flu jab (there will be also be covid vaccinations running). Please check that you are eligible for an NHS flu jab before you attend.

Children will need to book an appointment for flu vaccination as this is not carried out in our Saturday morning walk-in clinic.

Please make your way to the white tent in the car park where a steward will guide you.

The flu vaccine is given free on the NHS to people who:
  • are 50 and over (including those who’ll be 50 by 31 March 2022)
  • have certain health conditions (see below)
  • are pregnant
  • are in long-stay residential care
  • 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
  • live with someone who is more likely to get infections (such as someone who has HIV, has had a transplant or is having certain treatments for cancer, lupus or rheumatoid arthritis)
  • frontline health or social care workers

If you do not meet the criteria for an NHS flu jab, you can get this privately at many high street pharmacies and in some supermarkets.
