Flu Season 2018-19

The flu vaccination season has started and we have received some vaccinations. You may have heard on the news about the different vaccinations this year depending on your age. Further information can be found in the section 'Clinics and Services' above.

The delivery of the vaccines is very sporadic and spread out over 3 months so please bear with the practice team as we try to ensure that the most vulnerable patients are vaccinated first.

We are running clinics on Saturday Mornings and we are encouraging patients who have received invite letters and SMS Texts to book in to these.

The pharmacies in Dorchester are also able to give flu vaccines but they too are having supply difficulties. You may wish to phone them to check availability if you are unable to wait until the practice has further stock.
