Flu Vaccination information 2019/20

Are you aged 65 or over?

If you are aged over 65, or will turn 65 between 1st September 2019 and 31st March 2020, please telephone the Practice on 01400 281220 to book your flu vaccination.

Are you aged under 65?

If so, if you are pregnant, morbidly obese (with a BMI greater than 40), suffer from severe asthma, chronic liver disease, diabetes or immunosuppression, have a heart, kidney or lung condition, have suffered a stroke or TIA you are considered at greater risk from flu. If you fall into one of these “at-risk” categories or you are a carer you are eligible for a flu jab.

If you are not sure if your medical condition falls into any of these categories, please contact our Reception team and they will be happy to check for you.
