Flu Vaccine

The Flu Vaccine is generally available at the surgery from the end of September onwards.  The HSE always undertake a national media campaign to inform the public when the vaccine is available. We have Flu Vaccine clinics

   daily from 2.30pm  to 5.00pm

There is no need to make an appointment, just check in with our receptionists and they will ensure the Practice Nurse provides your vaccine as quickly as possible.

You may have a short waiting time, depending on the demand on the day.
