Flu Vaccinations

PROTECT YOURSELF | PROTECT THOSE AROUND YOU | PROTECT THE NHS

For flu enquiries (or help with the NHS App) please use our dedicated flu email address hart.flu@nhs.net. In order to keep our main phone lines free for day-to-day surgery business, it would really help us if you did not call our main line for flu enquiries if it is unavoidable. If you really do need to call, it would be helpful if you rang at a quiet time eg Tue-Fri, late morning or mid to late afternoon.

Flu Clinics at The Hart Surgery

Our flu vaccine is delivered in stages throughout September and October so we have to spread our clinics out, prioritising the most vulnerable.  We will be putting on extra clinics regularly so please check keep checking the website for details of new clinics

This year it is more important than ever to get yourself vaccinated against flu.  The eligibility criteria has been expanded to include all those over the age of 50 and everyone in an ‘at risk’ category.
