If you have missed the drop in clinics please speak to a receptionist. 

 

Children who are eligible for a flu vaccination should NOT attend these clinics. Please contact reception and arrange an appropriate appointment date and time.

   

Any changes to these clinics will be advertised in the surgery window and on the website: www.theavenuemedicalpractice.co.uk

 

If you have missed the above clinics please telephone and speak to a receptionist who will be able to offer you an alternative appointment.

 

 

If you would like a flu vaccination but you are not in one of the eligible groups, The Avenue Medical Practice no longer privide NHS or private prescriptions for flu vaccinations.  This is because there are now strict new guide lines about the 'cold chain', meaning that the vaccine has to be kept refrigerated at all times. Patients not in the eligible groups can have flu vaccinations administed in local supermarkets and some local chemists for a charge.
