If you are eligible for a free government flu vaccination we now have vaccines.
There is no need to phone us – our vaccination clinics are now open for ONLINE booking – click on BOOK A FLU VAX link at the top of the Home page.
To check your eligibility to receive the Dept of Health-free vaccine read the information below.
As we receive the Department of Health vaccines, we are running regular Flu Vaccine Clinics to both manage the demand and minimise the risk of COVID-19 infection via social distancing at the clinic.
Each flu season, we give over 4,000 flu vaccinations to our patients, however the supply and quantity of the influenza vaccines are out of our control. Please do not call us. Stay tuned to our site.
If you normally purchase your flu vaccine from our practice please contact us.
