Clinics & Services

The NHS strongly advises that all people of 65 and over, and anyone else with chronic health problems such as Asthma, Diabetes, Heart Disease, Kidney & Liver problems, should be vaccinated against the ‘flu every year in the autumn. There is a common misconception that people may be given the ‘flu by having a ‘flu vaccination, this is simply not possible and adverse reactions of any sort are rare.

We would strongly advise anybody who falls into one of the following groups to contact our Reception from August each year to arrange your autumn appropriate vaccination.

  • those aged 65 years and over

  • those aged 2 to under 65 years in clinical risk groups eg Diabetes, Heart failure, COPD, Asthma
