Flu and COVID-19 Vaccination clinics
Each year we deliver flu clinics to people in at-risk groups. These people are at greater risk of developing serious complications if they catch flu, such as pregnant women and elderly people. Where we are able to, we also offer patients the opportunity to receive their COVID-19 vaccination at the same time.
Patients who are eligible for flu and COVID-19 vaccinations will be contacted directly by the practice.
