The best person to talk to if you have concerns about your health and being vaccinated against COVID-19 is your doctor/general practitioner (GP). Contact us if you would like an appointment.

The clinic does not administer Covid-19 vaccines at this time - the Mansfield District Hospital operates the vaccination clinic.
