Flu Clinics

The doctors would like to invite you for a Seasonal Flu vaccination if you are:

  • aged 65 or over
  • pregnant
  • the main carer of an elderly or disabled person whose welfare would be at risk if you, the carer, fell ill

Or have any of the following conditions:

  • Lung problems, including asthma 
  • Heart problems 
  • Kidney problems 
  • Liver problems
  • Previous stroke or TIA
  • Diabetes, including diet controlled diabetes
  • Have a condition, or are receiving treatment, which makes you susceptible to infections

We know that proper "flu" in these people is more dangerous and more likely to lead to complications. Please contact reception to arrange your appointment.

The flu vaccine does not contain any "live" virus so it cannot ever give you flu. (Naturally, you can still get a cold or other viral illness if somebody sneezes at you the day before you have your vaccine!)
