If you fall within this age group and are not in one of the eligible ‘at risk groups’ please do not contact the practice to book an appointment as we are not yet able offer you a definite date or time.

We are continuing to provide flu vaccinations to over 65s, under 65s with certain long-term medical conditions, pregnant women and young children. If you are in one of these eligible groups and have not yet had your flu vaccine please contact the practice as soon as possible to book an appointment.
