Flu Vaccination Clinics

Important Flu Announcement

This morning we have been informed of a national delay in flu vaccination deliveries, this is due to unforeseen road freight challenges and is affecting all GP surgeries.

Unfortunately this does impact on our scheduled vaccination clinics.

Clinics on 11th and 15th September have now been cancelled and patients will be contacted to rebook.

Remaining clinics will run as planned along with additional clinics as noted below as long as there are no further delays.

Please accept our apologies for any inconvenience caused.
