FLU Vaccinations

The Practice is making appointments for patients to have the flu vaccine - Please call the Reception team to make an appointment.

Every year, flu kills thousands of people. The flu vaccine is the best protection we have against this infection which is why it is offered to those most at risk from the effects of flu and to children to reduce transmission of the virus.

We have some of the best flu vaccine uptake rates in Europe, although there is always more to be done to improve uptake especially for those in at risk groups. We have a pioneering programme for children and are delighted that for the first time in England, all primary school aged children will be offered flu vaccination this autumn.

This year there is also a wider range of more effective flu vaccines available, offering better protection to the population.

The annual flu vaccination programme saves thousands of lives every year, and reduces GP consultations, hospital admissions and pressure on A&E. We thank you for your support.
