If you’re aged between 50 and 64 you can call us to book your free NHS flu jab.
Book your appointment now on 0191 281 4588. Our Reception Team are here to take your call from 8:15 am and 6 pm, Monday to Friday.
This is the first time that 50 year olds with no underlying health conditions can get vaccinated on the NHS for free.
With the new strain of COVID adding even more stress to the NHS, it’s vital that we take every step to stay healthy. Getting vaccinated against flu – a nasty illness which can have serious complications – is a quick and easy way to do so.
We have sent letters and texts to everyone who is eligible for a free jab – but take-up hasn’t been as high as we would have expected.
I want to encourage anyone who hasn’t yet had their flu shot to get in touch. Call us on 0191 281 4588 to book your flu jab today.
If you’re unsure about coming to the practice, then please be assured we have taken every measure to make it safe and COVID-secure.
