An update on flu vaccinations this year


Eligible patients can now book their flu and/or covid vaccinations for September 2023.

Please either book via the link you would have received by email or text or call the surgery to book an appointment.


It has been announced this week that NHS want the flu vaccine and covid winter booster to be given at the same time if possible.

The NHS have decided to delay the start of both flu and covid vaccinations until Saturday 7th October. We will be running vaccination clinics the week commencing 9th October and a Saturday clinic on the 14th October.

Patients eligible are:


  • aged 6 months to under 65 years in clinical risk groups
  • pregnant women
  • those aged 65 years and over
  • close contacts of immunocompromised individuals

Covid Winter Booster

  • residents in a care home for older adults
  • all adults aged 65 years and over
  • persons aged 6 months to 64 years in a clinical risk group
  • frontline health and social care workers
  • persons aged 12 to 64 years who are household contacts of people with immunosuppression
  • persons aged 16 to 64 years who are carers and staff working in care homes for older adults

Eligible patients will be offered both vaccines at their appointment.

  • We will display posters/banners at the Surgery from the Beginning of September and patients will be able to book at reception via telephone or directly via text message or email invite.
