You will experience some changes at our annual flu clinics this year whilst we maintain social distancing guidelines.
All eligible flu vaccine patients will be contacted soon with a designated date and time slot. We ask where possible that you keep to the time slot you are allocated. Due to high volumes of patients who will wish to have the vaccine this year it will not be possible to change allocated time slots.
Patients will attend the Practice or The Village Hall at their allocated date/time. You will join a socially distanced waiting line and check in with the reception team who will assign you to a clinician. You will be provided with a ticket explaining which waiting line you need to attend to receive your vaccine.
