CHACEWATER AND DEVORAN SURGERIES – FLU CLINIC CANCELLED

We have had to make the difficult decision to cancel our Flu Clinics due to complications with the vaccines this year.

The recommended vaccine for over 65’s is not available to us until mid/late November and we have just been advised by Public Health England that we are not allowed to offer these patients the alternative vaccine at the moment.

We are working hard to resolve this situation and will keep you updated with our proposed plans.

 We anticipate that our clinics will now be held towards the end of November and sincerely apologise for any inconvenience caused.
