All children aged 2/3/4yrs, anyone aged 75yrs and over, and anyone 18-64 in an 'at risk' group can attend flu clinic this Saturday 13.10.18 10.00am-2.00pm (appts are pre-bookable)

This year flu vaccinations will be offered to the most at risk patients in October, and all other eligible patients in November.
This is due to national distribution of vaccines from suppliers, ensuring all practices receive a share of vaccines at appropriate times.
NHSE guidance states all patients should be vaccinated by end November 2018.
Our clinics will be appointed this year (no drop in)
Children's vaccines are not available to order until 28.9.18, and as yet, we have no expected date of delivery. As soon as we have a delivery date all eligible children will be invited.
