Flu vaccination 2020
The annual flu vaccination campaign is carried out mainly in October and November. Flu can be serious and each year thousands of people go to hospital and hundreds die. It is more important than ever to have your flu vaccination this year. While the vaccine cannot protect you against coronavirus (the coronavirus vaccine is being developed), it’ll help the NHS cope better through the winter months.
If you are eligible for a free flu vaccination, please contact us to arrange an appointment to have it. Please don’t delay! Be assured that we are taking your safety seriously. All patients to wear face coverings. All patients will be temperature checked and social distancing of 2 metres will be maintained.
