FLU VACCINATION 2022

We are in the process of booking flu vaccination appointments for the upcoming flu season. The majority of these appointments will take place in October and November of this year due to the delivery dates of our vaccines. This year we will be sending text messages to as many patients as possible to allow them to book their own flu vaccine. This will enable you to pick the date and time that suits you and helps to free up our already busy Reception teams.

If you believe that you are entitled to a vaccination as per the list below please contact Reception if you haven’t already received a text message or phone call. If you would like to receive an SMS link in the future please contact the surgery to ensure we have you signed up to this service.

Patients eligible for flu vaccination this year:

  • Aged 2-3 years old – nasal flu immunisation
  • School-age children – this will be dealt with at school
  • Aged 18-64 years old with medical conditions requiring a flu jab
  • Aged 50-64 years old – can only be vaccinated after 15th October 2022
  • Aged 65+ years old

Walton Village Medical Centre is committed to providing high quality medical care in a friendly environment.

We have been practicing from the same building for more than 20 years, and the practice is undergoing changes to deliver quality general practice in a traditional setting.

We believe that patients receive the best possible care when it's provided by a healthcare professional who genuinely knows their patient. This personal approach is vital for primary care. That's why we make it a priority to get to know our patients, understand their circumstances and healthcare requirements.

23rd Feb, 30th Mar, 27th April, 25th May, 29th June, 27th July, 28th Sept, 26th Oct, 23rd Nov
