We hold 'Seasonal Flu Clinics' each year.


We realise that it is sometimes difficult for patients to attend the flu clinics, but it is much easier for us to manage the flu vaccination campaign if patients do attend the clinics rather than making individual appointments.  We will send you an invite via letter or text.
