We are happy to confirm we will be delivering the Covid-19 booster vaccination alongside the flu vaccination. Should you already have an appointment booked for your flu vaccine, you will be offered a Covid-19 booster at the same time. If you do not wish to have the Covid-19 vaccine, please still attend for your flu vaccine. If you wish to have both vaccines but do not wish to have them at the same time, please still attend for your flu appointment.

- avoiding crowded places such as public transport, large social gatherings, or anywhere that is enclosed or poorly ventilated
- taking any exercise outdoors in places where you will not have close contact with other people
