FLU CLINICS 2018
Summer might only just be drawing to an end but we have been busy planning and preparing for the winter flu season. Last winter in Nottingham we experienced unprecedented demand both in GP surgeries and hospitals. We would like our patients to do everything they can to stay fit and healthy.
We are now taking bookings for flu vaccinations and have two dedicated Saturdays arranged together with various clinics during the week offering a variety of morning, afternoon and evening appointments.
The Saturday clinics are on the following dates:
Saturday 29th September: 8.30am - 12noon
Saturday 13th October: 8.30am - 12 noon
You should have a flu vaccination if you:
- are 65 years of age or over
- are pregnant
- have certain long term medical conditions (aged 6 months to 64 years)
- are living in a long-stay residential care home or other long-stay facility
- receive a carer's allowance, or are the main carer for an elderly or disabled person whose welfare may be at risk if you fall ill
