Flu vaccinations for patients aged between 50 and 64

If you are aged between 50 and 64 you will be invited to get your free flu vaccine shortly as part of this year’s expanded flu vaccination programme.

We will be arranging appointments to coincide with delivery of new vaccine stock and at present we do not know when this will be available. Please be patient and wait for us to contact you. Vaccinations will continue throughout the winter season.

If you are in an eligible at-risk group you remain a priority for vaccination and we will be inviting you to attend an appointment if you have not already done so.

SEVENOAKS MINOR INJURY UNIT

Please note that from 2nd November this unit will become an Urgent Treatment centre and will be available by appointment only. In order to be assessed for an appointment please call 111.

  • Caring for a parent

    Watch this video on: caring for a parent at home

  • Telling people

    Caring responsibilities can make it difficult to maintain friendships or develop new ones. Telling your friends you're a carer is important so they understand and can support you.

  • Taking a break

    Caring for someone can be a full-time job, but it's essential that you take time out for yourself too. Read our guide to accessing breaks and respite.

  • Housing and carers

    Do you know your tenancy rights as a carer? Are you aware of all your care at home options? Do you need tips on moving someone around the home?
