Flu Clinics:
Our clinics start in October; we offer a variety of days & times, the first in on Saturday 17 October; appointments will be available shortly.

Flu strains change & therefore the vaccine varies from year to year.
We advise the following amongst our patients to take advantage of the annual campaign to protect themselves from flu this winter; those are patients:

  • who are pregnant
  • with chronic (long term) respiratory disease such as severe asthma or COPD
  • with coronary heart disease, heart failure, diabetes, liver or kidney disease, stroke, TIA & chronic neurological disease
  • who have a weakened immune system due to treatments that suppress the immune system eg chemotherapy & conditions such as HIV
  • who are carers or frontline health or social care workers
  • children aged over 6 months with a long term condition

This year:
  • it is national policy to offer annual influenza vaccination in the form of a nasal vaccine to children aged between 2, 3 & 4 years plus school years 1 & 2 on 31 August 2015
