INTRODUCTION

Protect yourself and others from flu. It is important to have the flu vaccination every year but with Covid it is even more important this year.

Please visit the NHS website for those eligible.  We are sending letters for you to attend walk-through clinics (no drop-in clinic due to Covid restrictions).  Please read the letter carefully and attend if possible at your allotted time maintaining social distancing. You will be met by a member of staff and guided through a socially distanced queue. Please wear a face covering or mask.
