Where care I get a free NHS flu jab?

Different types of vaccine?

There is two types of flu vaccination.
1) 1 An injection is offered to those aged 18 and above.
2) 2 A nasal spray is offered to those under 18.

Why do I keep getting text reminders when I have had my vaccine already?

Please kindly inform us if you already had your flu vaccination. As there might be a delay from when you have your vaccine and us being informed which may mean a text message is sent after you have already had your jab.

What if I don't want a flu jab?

Whilst we strongly recommend that people get the flu vaccine, it is your decision. If you choose not to have it then please let us know as soon as possible.

  • Important: Telephone System Fault

    Dear patient

    We would like to inform you that there has been a fault identified by BT with our telephone system including Automated System.

    This has been reported on 04.11.19, which was investigated by our telephone system provider and BT. They identified the fault and confirmed that this was resolved on 08.11.19.

    Unfortunately, we found out that patients still experiencing difficulties reaching us and calls were dropped during the weekend. We have raised another log to resolve the issues as soon as possible.
