Flu vaccination at Whitehill Surgery
Are you at risk of flu? Are you eligible for a free flu vaccination?
If so, please contact our reception team without delay as we are now booking appointments for our Flu Clinics
For most people, flu is an unpleasant illness, but it is not serious. However, some people are more likely to develop potentially serious complications of flu such as bronchitis and pneumonia. Free flu vaccination is offered on the NHS to these people to help protect them against flu and from developing serious complications.
You may be eligible to receive a free flu vaccination if you:
- are aged 65 years or older
- are pregnant
- have certain medical conditions that mean you are in an at risk group
- are aged 2, 3 and 4 years
If you have certain medical or long term health conditions you may be at increased risk of the complications of flu. This can mean you are in what is referred to as an ‘at risk’ group and you may be eligible for a flu vaccination.
Have a look around our website and please do send us some feedback. We can use your thoughts to improve our online services & further develop the website to make it a more useful, practical application for our patients.
If you are thinking of joining the practice, or you are a patient with us and are moving house, please check to see if you are within our practice boundary.
