Winter vaccinations

Boost your Immunity with the Flu Vaccine and COVID-19 Booster

If you’re eligible, the NHS will invite you when it’s your turn.

As the colder months are approaching, it is important to have your winter vaccinations to protect you and those around you who may be vulnerable. Some people may be eligible for both flu and COVID-19 booster vaccines. If you are offered both vaccines, it’s safe to have them at the same time. COVID-19 is still in circulation and indications are that cases are rising again.

Despite a very few cases of flu last year health experts suggest it may be in wider circulation this winter. It is possible to have both illnesses at the same time so having the vaccinations reduces the likelihood of serious illness should you get flu and / or Covid.

If you have been invited for a flu vaccination book by calling the surgery on 01604 638162. Or you can book at a pharmacy also offering the service. They will let the practice know you have had your jab.

For COVID-19, you can book online here.
