Patients are reminded NOT to use the new online booking request form to try and book a flu vaccine appointment.

The practice is also offering advice to parents with queries about the childhood flu vaccination programme. If your child is not in the age groups that can be seen at the practice for their flu jab, the following information might be helpful:

  • most children will receive their flu vaccine at school 
  • if your child misses their vaccine at school please discuss this with the school 
  • home schooled children or those not in mainstream education will be offered the flu vaccine by the school aged immunisation service (if you do not hear from them please contact the local education authority to ask about this.)
