Seasonal Influenza Vaccination Campaign in Winter Months (Sep to March) Every Year

Seasonal Influenza Vaccination programme starts from 1st or 2nd week of September every year and ends on 31st March the following year.

All Aged 65 and Over and Aged 18 and Over with clinical risk factors are eligible for free Seasonal Influenza Vaccination. Eligible patients are notified about the availability of vaccines and how to book flu jabs using our self-booking system or by calling the practice. Ideally self booking method is the most convenient method for booking flu jabs as it saves time and effort in otherwise booking flu jabs over the phone or in person.

Aged 2-3 years old who will be receiving Intra-nasal influenza vaccination.

If you require any further information about booking flu vaccinations or your eligibility to get one please speak to your GP receptionists team who will be happy to help you with your queries.

We are running special flu clinics for our patients throughout the week both mornings and afternoons

Patients with multiple conditions will be invited for both their Influenza vaccination and routine check ups in pre-booked appointments.

 All eligible patients will be notified via SMS to book their flu appointments. Please let your practice know if your mobile number has changed.

The quickest and easy way to book your flu vaccination appointments is via online booking. You can book your flu vaccination appointment online through the self book links sent to patients via text messages or by using the NHS App. Download your NHS App using iphone or android play stores or visit on your PC.
