SEASONAL FLU CLINICS

We hold 'Seasonal Flu Clinics' each year starting in October.


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 publish the flu clinic details in the Stradbroke Monthly, Five Alive, Laxfield Newsletter, Village Voice, Athelington, Horham & Redlingfield News & Cratfield News.  If you know of any other publication that you would like us to advertise the details in, then please let us know.  The details are also published on this website, and are available from the practice from late August.  Unfortunately, we are unable to send out individual letters due to the cost.
