2020 Flu Vaccinations update.

Flu vaccinations will be managed slightly differently this year due to larger eligible groups and the requirement for social distancing.  This means that you may not come to the surgery for your vaccination and instead may be invited to attend at another location.

If you are not in an eligible group and would still like to get the flu vaccination, you can pay a small fee to be immunised at most local pharmacies.

The following groups will be eligible for a free vaccination as detailed:

All pre-school children – The pre-school immunisation team will contact parents and guardians with an appointment at a community location.
