It's that time of the year again!
The flu season is almost upon us & the appointment booking system is now LIVE!
We are using the same system as we did last year. If you have used it before for either Covid testing or Flu vaccinations you will already have created a sign on and password, so will need to sign in to the Booking Link using these (top right hand corner of the screen) then choose a location and make your booking.
If you’ve not, click here choose a location and make a booking, and you'll also be asked to create an account enabling you to manage your booking (reschedule, cancel, check the details) in the future.

I’m pregnant, can I have a flu jab?

If you feel unwell/poorly you should not attend, but if you are you poorly then you maybe should not be at work
I’m classed as clinically vulnerable, can I still have a flu jab?
No, we advise you liaise with your own GP who holds your medical records, we would not be able to give medical advice.

All dates at all sites are shown on the appointment booking system and on the site posters too
I am WFH, could I have a voucher instead?
Ideally we would love you to come to site for a flu jab but if you are unable to come to site please contact Claire Kershaw to arrange a voucher before the end of October.

We are booking appointments at 4 minute intervals, but there may be short waiting times and you may need to sit for a few minutes after the appointment

No, we have a list of contents and this is not listed.
