    Flu Vaccine

    If you are eligible for the flu vaccine, you may receive a letter from your GP Practice. The letter will advise how your GP Practice will provide your flu vaccination - in some instances, this may not be within your GP Practice but at a local venue or walk-through facility. Please take the letter with you when you attend for your vaccine or you may not receive it. You may also be able to get your flu vaccination at a participating Community Pharmacy* if unable to attend at your GP Practice (you should contact the pharmacy prior to attending). If you are eligible for the flu vaccine but have not received a letter from your GP Practice, please contact your practice to request one and give this to the Community Pharmacy when you attend.
