Flu Vaccinations

The Annual Flu Vaccination is now available and the rush is on to ensure vaccination before the arrival of winter. Please contact us to book a time for your Flu vaccination.

Flu vaccinations are always popular and recognised as a valuable tool to ward off what can be a dangerous illness.   

Remember, Flu Vaccinations are free for those over 65, for pregnant women, anyone with asthma, diabeties and those with heart or lung disease and any children under five with a history of significant respiratory disease.

We also encourage Young Adults to be vaccinated and we encourage those between 18 and 25 to get protection - don't miss out on the activities you enjoy by getting the Flu.

Please note - Because it is more important to get the Flu vaccines completed, we will not be providing the Shingles vaccine (Zostavax) with the Flu vaccines but waiting until the Flu season is over
