Giffard Drive Surgery Flu Clinics
We are in the process of planning our flu vaccination campaign for 2017-18 and will continue to offer this service to our our eligible patients. Please call the Surgery any time from mid-August 2017 to book an appointment to have your flu jab.
We will be holding our annual Saturday flu clinics at Blunden Hall on 23 September 2017 and 7 October 2017 between 1pm-4pm.
The flu vaccine is recommended for everyone over the age of 65 years, or for those who have any of the following diseases:
- Diabetes Mellitus
- Heart Disease
- Chronic Lung Disease
- Asthmatics who are using inhaled steroids regularly
- Chronic Kidney Disease
- Chronic Liver Disease
- Those who are immuno-suppressed due to illness or treatment
This year the influenza vaccine will again include protection against swine flu.
The doctors at Giffard Drive Surgery support these recommendations and would encourage you to take up this offer.
We are also offering the flu jab to our pregnant patients so please make an appointment for the flu clinic.
