Book Your Flu Vaccination Appointment – Flu Season 2021-22
Although we have had some issues with our Flu vaccination deliveries, the good news is that we are on track to start our flu programme on the 4th October.
Flu vaccination appointments are available to book for eligible patients. Please see below a list of flu clinic dates and times.
You can now book your flu vaccination appointment using our Flu Vaccination Request form.
Alternatively you can contact our reception team who will be happy assist you.
Please note Powys Teaching Health Board have started to invite patients to the Mass Vaccination Centres to receive their COVID vaccine booster. Please be advised that it is safe to have both the Flu vaccination and COVID vaccine booster within the same day. Therefore, if you already have an appointment with us to receive your flu vaccination and you receive an appointment for the same day at the MVC to be given your COVID vaccine booster then you can attend both appointments, providing this is convenient for you.
Further information on flu vaccinations is available from the NHS: www.nhs.uk/flu-influenza-vaccine
