Supply of flu vaccinations
There is a National shortage of some of the flu vaccinations and we are having difficulty receiving enough supply to meet the demands of the Practice. Our next delivery is not due until mid-November at the earliest, and it is with regret that we are unable to offer more flu clinics until we receive our flu vaccinations. Your co-operation and understanding is greatly appreciated at this difficult time.
