Flu Vaccinations 2020-21

 

Are you aged between 50 & 64 years?  Have you had your free Flu jab?

 

There is still time to book your flu jab  

Please contact the surgery

Our next flu clinic is on

Thursday 17th December

If you are in any eligible category and you have missed your flu vaccine appointment you can access the flu jab on the 17th December .

Is your child aged 2 or 3 years old?

Children in this age group are eligible for

The flu nasal spray at your practice.

 

The nasal spray is painless and easy to administer. This nasal spray helps protect your child against flu. Protecting your child can also stop flu spreading to other children and help protect more vulnerable friends and family, especially babies and grandparents, who may be at higher risk from flu.

  

The vaccination is free and recommended for young children. The vaccination will be given via a quick and simple spray up the nose.
