Fluvax for 2020 at Preston Family Medical

Fluvax for 2020 is now available at Preston Family Medical. There is strong advice for everyone eligible to have the influenza vaccination, more so in these Covid19 times. Not because the influenza vaccine protects against Covid19 but because the fluvax lowers your chance of being in hospital with influenza and then exposed to Covid19 and lowers your risk of co-infection: having both influenza and Covid19 at the same time.

Call to book for fluvax

Due to the Covid19 situation we are booking the fluvax clinics slowly and safely to minimise the number of people in the waiting room at one time. As a result we will book you manually and not through the HotDoc online booking system we use for regular consultations.
