2016 Flu vaccinations still available - please telephone 01323 833535 to book yours
The following groups are eligible for a flu vaccine this year:
- Those aged 65 years and over
- Those aged 6 months to under 65 in 'at risk' groups
- Pregnant women
- All two, three and four year olds
- Those in long-stay residential care homes
In the interests of the environment we have been advertising our flu clinic around the village rather than sending invitations to all. Please help us to spread the word and tell your friends and family to check their eligibility and contact us to book an appointment. If you are unsure whether you are eligible or not, please call and our Receptionists will advise.
Shingles vaccines were introduced last year for 70 and 79 year olds. This year they will also be offered to 78 year olds. All patients eligible will be sent invitations to come and have their vaccine. This will be in a usual nurse appointment time rather than at the flu clinic to provide more time to run through the details. You can have your flu vaccine at the same time. If you wish to do this, please book after 3rd October and check with the Receptionist that the vaccine has arrived.
