Flu vaccination drop-in clinics are now available at the surgery for eligible patients under the age of 65; these drop-in clinics are available between Tuesday to Friday from 12:00 to 13:00.
For patients 65 and over, please let the reception team know you are 65 or over and we will either book you an appointment for a date we know we’ll have vaccinations in or take your name and ring you back. This is due to limited stock available for this age group.
