Flu Vaccination Programme

Saturday Flu Clinic – Important Update

The manufacturer of the 2021 flu vaccines Sequirus, has just informed us of a delay to our delivery of vaccine. We were planning to start flu clinics on the Saturday 18th September but this is now likely to be two weeks later. Please support our surgery as we have the stock coming all be it a bit later than planned. We will be communicating with you as soon as we have a confirmed delivery date and can offer you an appointment. Many thanks for your patience. 

Our nasal flu delivery has not been affected by this issue, so if your child has a weekday appointment at the surgery, please do attend. However if your child has an appointment on Saturday 18th September, please call us to rearrange this or email us on [email protected]
