If you are 65+ or have a chronic condition we have flu appointments available – please ring to book on 01244 385553
Having the flu vaccine is the best way to protect yourself and others from a nasty virus that kills around 11,000 people every year in England. By having the vaccine you’re also helping protect the NHS from being overwhelmed by a flu epidemic combining with any rise in Covid-19 cases.
For details of who’s entitled to the free vaccine, visit www.nhs.uk and search for “flu”.
Flu Vaccinations are available for all patients who are over 65, who have Chronic Disease, who are pregnant, or who are carers. This offers a high level of protection from influenza and its complications.
Please attend alone unless you need a carer, wear a mask if you have a chronic disease.
Please do not arrive at the flu clinic if you have any of the following symptoms:
- new, continuous/repeatedly cough
- temperature greater than 37.8C
- a loss of sense of smell / taste
Flu Clinic 2023
It is recommended all adults 65yrs and over and also those with underlying health conditions have a Flu vaccination to maximise protection right across the winter months.
We are holding a flu vaccine clinic at your GP Surgery on Saturday 23rd and 30th September 2023 for patients 65yrs and over. We have another clinic on Saturday 7th October ONLY for patients under 65yrs and in a risk group. We are NOT vaccinating children at these weekend clinics. Ring us separately to arrange this if we have invited them.
We will invite you by text or letter if you are eligible. If you have not heard from the Surgery by October and wish to be vaccinated please contact the surgery on 01244385553 and speak to Reception.
Car Parking on Saturday’s
Unfortunately there is no reduced parking (concessionary rate) for the car park located beneath the building at the weekends. The full rate of £4.00 for 2 hours parking will be operational during the Saturday flu clinics.
The main lift from the underground car park to the surgery (1st floor) should be accessible.
As the car park is owned and operated by Cheshire West & Chester Council, the parking fees beyond the control of the practice.
Please do not park in the loading bay outside the fountains as you may get a parking ticket.
