We are now taking bookings for our yearly influenza 'flu' clinics. The first clinic at Park Medical Centre is on Saturday 4th October from 8.30am. Foxhole Medical Centre's flu clinic will be held on Wednesday 8th October from 2.00pm. Please telephone to arrange an appointment although you can book online again this year.
We continue to offer the injections to all patients over 65 years and those who are at risk, suffering from diabetes, chronic respiratory disease, liver and/or kidney disease. We also offer injections to carers and Poultry workers.
We also offer most patients who are eligible for a flu jab a one off pneumonia vaccine. Please ask the Practice Nurse if you do not think you have had this in the past and we will be able to administer this at the same time as your flu jab.
The Government is also offering Shingles vaccines to everyone who is 70 or 79 on 1st September. Please mention this to the Practice Nurse when you attend for your flu jab as she will be able to administer this at the same time.
