This year we have changed how we will offer you a flu vaccine. We have appointments for the following 2 Saturday clinics available for booking:
Saturday 26th September 2020 AM
Saturday 3rd October 2020 AM
Please check below to ensure you are eligible and please call the practice to make an appointment after 2pm each day.
We will also offer appointments with our Nursing and Healthcare Assistant team in September, October and November. These appointments are now available to book at reception. Again please only ring the practice after 2pm each day. Please ensure we have an up to date mobile number, so we can keep you updated if necessary.
For our weekend events we must be vigilant to maintain social distancing, so they will all be done on the ground floor of the building. We will operate a one way system and it may be necessary for you to queue outside. We will update the information for this nearer the time.
Please note we cannot provide other services during the flu clinics.
All staff members will be wearing full Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) at the time of vaccination. The guidance for PPE for flu clinics is being regularly updated and we will be using the most up to date guidance at the clinics.
At Risk patients eligible for the flu vaccine:
We will firstly be inviting patients aged OVER 65 years, and those who are under 65 years WITH health conditions making them eligible for the vaccine. We will also be including all the eligible children.
Lots of people are asking about the flu vaccine for those aged 50 to 64 years; these will take place AFTER our “at risk” patients are offered the vaccine and if stocks allow. This is likely to be November or December and depends on further government guidance.
We will continue to monitor and update you with more information nearer the time. Please follow our website for the most up to date information.
Coronavirus information: Please see updates & website links available on our homepage
