UPDATE 31/10/2022: Our flu and COVID vaccination clinics are now fully booked. For flu vaccines, please contact a community pharmacy. For COVID vaccinations, please call 119 or visit the NHS website to book an appointment. All school aged children aged 4-16 years are being vaccinated against flu at school.
Scam reports: The police and NHS have received reports of a scam involving patients being offered flu/covid vaccinations in exchange for a fee and/or bank details by phone, text, email, or on the doorstep of their homes. If you have been contacted or visited and are unsure if it’s from the surgery, please call us directly for advice.
The NHS will never:
- Ask you for your bank account or bank card details
- Ask you for your PIN number or banking password
- Arrive unannounced at your home to administer your flu/covid vaccine
