Five hundred patients of a Fenland health centre picked up their free flu vaccinations on Saturday - but at a health fair instead of their surgery.

The free jabs were offered to patients of Upwell Health Centre as part of the fair, organised by the surgery's Patient Participation Group.

It was the fifth time the annual fair had been held.

As well as free jabs, advice and information stalls were scattered around Upwell village hall by organisations such as Age Concern, Citizens Advice Bureau, Norfolk Fire and Rescue Service and Magpas.
