Pharmacies are giving Flu Vaccinations now
They have been supplied with exactly the same vaccines as General Practices and are able to vaccinated everyone over 5 years of age.
We are taking bookings for children under 5.
We do not have flu vaccines for 5 - 65 years at the moment.
Annual vaccination is the most important measure to prevent influenza and its complications.
It is recommended for all people aged 6 months and over. We are very grateful to our pharmacies and public health for helping us (by providing flu vaccinations) to keep appointments available with our doctors over the winter period.
