Our first flu vaccines have arrived and the first clinics on the 11th and 12th September will go ahead as planned at Dewsbury Health Centre. We have a limited amount of appointment free for this weekend, you can book online or by calling us. Appointments are allocated on a first come first serve basis. Due to the national issue of a shortage of delivery drivers we do not have a next delivery date confirmed from our supplier and therefore encourage patients to book as soon as possible.
