Get the latest Influenza (Flu) Vaccine
The influenza vaccination is recommended for all age groups from children to the elderly.


Do I need to get a flu shot every year?
The Government strongly recommend all age groups have a yearly vaccination to maintain immunity and to promote ‘herd’ immunity. Immunity from the flu virus is not long lasting and flu virus strains may change from year to year. Flu is a highly contagious virus and potentially life threatening to those at risk. 


Is the flu shot safe?
The flu shot is safe for adults, children over 6 months, pregnant women (at all stages of pregnancy) and the elderly.


When should I have the flu vaccination?
Vaccinating from April provides the best protection for the flu season. It takes 10-14 days to be fully protected. Peak influenza season is from June to September each year.


How do I book?
You can ring the practice and Reception will make you an appropriate appointment with either your doctor or the nurse.
