2019 Flu Clinics
Book your flu jab today – it’s free because you need it!
Patients in at risk groups are being reminded to get their free flu jab. Adults over 65; those with long term health conditions; children aged two to eleven; carers and pregnant women may all be eligible.
Flu is a highly contagious illness that spreads rapidly through the population. Although it’s not possible to know which strains of flu will circulate each winter, the flu vaccination is still the best protection against an unpredictable virus which can cause severe illness and deaths amongst vulnerable groups.
If you are eligible for the flu vaccine, get it now – it’s free because you need it.
Please contact reception to book yours or visit www.nhs.uk/fluvaccine for more information.
IF YOU HAVE NOT YET HAD YOUR FLU JAB, PLEASE CONTACT RECEPTION OR BOOK ONLINE TO ARRANGE YOUR APPOINTMENT
