Flu Vaccinations 2020/2021

This year Lea Vale Medical Group are delivering their vaccinations differently. This is due to the COVID pandemic and to ensure the safety of both patients and staff and that all our patients who are entitled to the free flu vaccination receive one.

If you are entitled to a free flu vaccination you will be offered a drive thru appointment at Chiltern Academy School (Opposite Gypsy Lane Retail Park) or if you do not have access to a car a walk through appointment will be available at Liverpool Road Health Centre.

To ensure safety you will need to book your appointment this year.

To ensure a speedy process come prepared to receive your vaccine, you will need to have your upper arm accessible and a face covering.
