Flu Vaccine Appointments

When attending an appointment for the flu vaccine, please ensure the following:

  • You wear a mask or face covering at all times
  • You arrive at the time of your appointment, not before, to limit the amount of patients waiting to be seen and therefore reducing contact with others
  • Only one carer/parent/guardian to accompany a patient
  • The appointment is for a flu vaccine only. For any other medical concerns, please book another appointment with a doctor or nurse, as appropriate.

Patients 50-64 Years Of Age

Please note that people in the 50-64-year old age group will not be vaccinated until November and December, providing there is sufficent vaccine and no appointments will be offered for this age group until then. This is to ensure that those most at risk are vaccinated first. If you are 50-64 and you are in one of the other groups which are eligible for the flu vaccination, for example, you have a health condition which puts you at risk from the flu, you will be invited earlier.
