Don’t get caught out! For some patients, catching flu can cause serious or life threatening complications, even if they feel well before hand.
That’s why every autumn, as part of a yearly national campaign, eligible patients are offered a free seasonal flu vaccination as they have a greater risk of serious complications should they catch flu.
The eligible patient groups include:
- Patients aged 65 & over
- Patients aged 6 months to 64 in a clinical risk group
- Pregnant women
- Children age 2 and 3 years old (at nursery)
- Children in reception and years 1 and 2 (at primary school)

Flu clinics are available from September onwards, to book your appointment, simply call the surgery now on 01503 266960 and remember the sooner you are immunised, the sooner you are protected.
Alternatively, if you decide you do not wish to have the Influenza vaccination this year, please advise the surgery so that we can update your patient records or fill out the electronic decline form below.
