We are currently organising this years Influenza Vaccine Clinics. People who are likely to get very poorly from flu should get a flu vaccination every year. If you are eligible for the free flu vaccine, you can get it from your own GP practice or any pharmacy offering NHS flu vaccinations.
More people are getting their flu vaccination this year, doctor’s surgeries and pharmacies are experiencing a high demand for the flu vaccine. You will be sent a text or letter asking you to make an appointment for your free flu vaccination as soon as we have the avaliability. This year, early demand for flu vaccine has been higher than usual but there is enough flu vaccine for everyone who is eligible to get vaccinated before the flu season starts, which is usually in December.
This has meant that while a lot of people have been able to get vaccinated, some people have not been able to get vaccinated straight away as some GP practices and pharmacies have limit avaliability due to the level of demand. Please be patient with our staff whilst we oraganise our clinics.
