Shingles vaccination is available all year round to eligible patients aged between 70 and 79, so please ask at reception if you would like this.
You can make an appointment via reception for the flu jab now. Due to the Vaccine Company's delivery schedule this year, we are not receiving sufficient supply of the new vaccine for over 65's, but we have plenty of stock of the 2nd line vaccination for Over 65's, or you can try to find it at your local pharmacy. Receiving your flu jab a bit later in the season should not affect your susceptibility as the flu virus is most active around Jan/Feb time. Under 65's Eligible for flu - Vaccine stock levels are plentiful. Please make an appointment as soon as possible.
