East Wing Surgery

FLU VACCINATIONS WILL BE AVAILABLE SOON FOR THE USUAL COHORT OF PATIENTS (SEE BELOW TO SEE IF YOU ARE ELIGIBLE)

WE’LL BE IN TOUCH WHEN APPOINTMENTS ARE AVAILABLE

Please note that people in the 50-64-year old age group will not be vaccinated until November and December, providing there is sufficient vaccine, and no appointments will be offered for this age group until then. This is to ensure that those who are most at risk are vaccinated first.  If you are 50-64 and you are in one of the other groups which is eligible for the flu vaccination, for example you have a health condition which puts you at risk from the flu, you will be invited earlier.

Here you will find information on why you may have to wait for your flu vaccine
