Visit our Health Bus and get 'winter strong’

20 October 2023

The 'Come and have a chat about your health' bus will visit locations across Richmond with the NHS on hand to offer seasonal vaccinations to eligible residents. 

As we enter the autumn and winter months it is important for us to take care of our health and wellbeing. Vaccines offer the best protection against flu and Covid-19.

Health professionals will be on hand to answer any health-related questions and offer advice on how to stay well as the months get colder.

If you have any questions or concerns about the vaccines, you can come along and have a chat, with no pressure to get a jab.

We will also be giving out a free box of Covid-19 testing kits to those who attend if they would like one, while supplies last.
