An influenza vaccination is particularly recommended for patients over 65 plus those with heart, lung disease, kidney disease or diabetes. Also those resident in nursing and rest homes. Please contact the reception staff in mid-September for details of the vaccination dates and to make an appointment. Posters giving further details will be displayed in the waiting room. Home visits can be arranged for those patients who are housebound and have no one that can bring them to surgery. Please contact reception for details.
If you are the main carer for a relative or friend receiving a flu vaccination, you are entitled to one as well. If you are not in one of the above mentioned categories but would like to receive a flu vaccination, some local pharmacies will offer this service for a fee.
