Flu Campaign 2018
All patients' in an 'at risk' group will shortly receive an invitation to attend one of our 'Flu Clinics'. This years clinics will be later than normal as we have to work around our vaccine delivery schedules. We would be grateful if patients could try and attend their allocated clinic dates to avoid running low on stock throughout the campaign.
