Annual Flu vaccinations

More information will be provided soon to enable all those eligible to receive their flu vaccination. To find out if you are eligible for the free flu vaccination click here.
COVID VACCINATION PROOF / COVID 'passport' requests
We are unable to offer you certification of your Covid-19 vaccination, a vaccination passport or a letter to prove you have been vaccinated against Covid-19.
These documents have not yet been developed and as such cannot be provided by your GP. As soon as we have further information on when and how these will be available, we will share it with you.
In the meantime, please do not contact us to request evidence as we do not have the capacity to support these requests.
If you wish to have proof of vaccine status you will need to download the NHS UK app on a smartphone (link below) or desktop PC. If you do not have access to a smartphone, you can also access your information, once registered, via web browser.
IF YOU DO NOT HAVE ACCESS TO THE INTERNET, YOU CAN USE THE FREE INTERNET/ WI-FI ACCESS AVAILABLE AT THE LOCAL LIBRARY TO DOWNLOAD / PRINT THE INFORMATION NEEDED
