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.
