Haltwhistle Medical Group would like to invite all their eligible patients to get the flu vaccination. Vaccinations are given by pre-booked appointments and can be booked at reception, by telephone on 01434 320077 or online via EMIS patient access https://www.patientaccess.com/.
UNDER 65’s FLU VACCINATION UPDATE!! Due to circumstances beyond our control the delivery date for the under 65 vaccination has been delayed.
Unfortunately we are having to rearrange some booked appointment as we will not have the vaccines in stock.
The appointments that we need to change are between 14.10.2019 to 18.10.2019 – please contact the surgery if you currently have a booked appointment for a under 65’s flu vaccination during these dates and we will rebook the appointment for you. Alternatively there are appointments available online.For more information on Flu Vaccinations eligibility criteria please speak to a member of staff or visit www.nhs.uk/conditions/vaccinations/who-should-have-flu-vaccine/
