Flu Vaccination 2018 – 2019

Flu vaccination season is nearly here, and this year we are doing things a little differently.

Following direction from NHS England, there are two different adult vaccines this year:

Patients aged 65 or over will be given a trivalent vaccine called Fluad (aTiv).

Eligible patients aged between 18-64 years of age will be given a  quadrivalent vaccine  (QIV).

This is because the Fluad vaccination is deemed to be for effective in patients aged over 65.

In order to manage the high quantities of flu vaccinations that we give during our Saturday clinics, this year we ask that you contact us to make an appointment. We will not be able to vaccinate you if you arrive without a prebooked appointment. We appreciate that this is different to past years, so please do share this information with your friends, neighbours and family in order to help us to spread the word.

Our deliveries are staggered over 3 months which is why there are gaps between our clinic dates.

Vaccinations for children are provided from a central source. Once we have been made aware of our delivery dates and stocks we will be able to let you know about our children’s flu clinics. Please keep an eye on our website and Facebook page.

Please book an appointment  at one of the following clinics  in order to have your flu vaccination:
