Flu jabs for patients aged 50-64 (with no other risk factors)
Although Matt Hancock has announced this morning (20th November) that patients in this category can have a free flu jab, we are not yet able to take bookings for this.
We are awaiting confirmation on the delivery of these vaccines and once received will contact those eligible patients directly.
The doctors and staff at Mytton Oak surgery in Shrewsbury are proud to offer the highest standard of patient-centred healthcare. We run many clinics for the management of chronic diseases such as asthma and diabetes and offer a wide variety of other medical services including antenatal and postnatal care, minor surgery, childhood vaccinations and well-person check-ups.
You will find everything you need to know about the practice at the top of this page, and some other links at the bottom of this page.
