Shortage of flu vaccine for people 65 years and older

There is a national shortage of the special flu vaccine for older people this year. This has prevented us getting enough stocks in to do our clinics in the usual way. We have another delivery on the 7th November and have had to cancel all the walk in flu clinics before that date.

Apologies for all those who have already come hoping to be vaccinated, in vain, when our initial stocks had run out.

The vaccines are arriving for clinics in October, there is a special vaccine for people aged 65 or over, and so there are separate clinics for this group NB there are some difficulties with the supply of this vaccine, so bear with us if we run out, we are trying to get enough in for you:
