Haddenham Medical Centre was one of the first GP services in the Aylesbury area to offer flu jabs, holding a flu clinic on Saturday 24th September.
But don't worry — you haven't missed the opportunity. There will be further flu clinics in the coming weeks and we will bring you details once we have them.
In the meantime, flu appointments are available on an ad hoc basis — bookable online or via reception.
A flu vaccine is available free on the NHS for specific individuals:
- anyone over the age of 65
- pregnant women
- children and adults with an underlying health condition (particularly long-term heart or respiratory disease)
- children and adults with weakened immune systems
If you would like to gain some protection from flu for the coming Autumn and Winter and your busy diary makes it difficult to schedule an appointment at the Medical Centre, you can also get a flu shot at JMW Vicary — the pharmacy based on the Medical Centre site.
We understand that this is a walk-in service, but if you would like to be sure, you can telephone in advance: 01844 291960
