Noticeboard

Our Flu Vaccination clinics will begin in September. We will be offering vaccinations to all patients aged 65 years and over. All patients with Chronic Conditions who are considered at risk. Pregnant women and children aged 2 - 3 years. There are several flu vaccines available and patients will be booked for the one that is most effective for their age. Our clinics will be timed according to the delivery of each of these vaccine types. This may differ slightly for each category. 

We hope to start booking our clinics in August once we have received confirmation of delivery dates. We hope to have completed our vaccinations by the end of November.

We would ask all patients contacted to book an appointment to respond to our first invitation. If you have not received an invitation by the first week of September and think you fall into one of the categories above please contact us and check.

Flu Vaccinations 2020

This year our flu clinics will begin in September. We are starting to book appointments now and will begin contacting patients shortly.

Some appointments will be available for patients to book via patient access. Patients must read the information below before booking to make sure they are booked into the correct clinic. Bookable appointment slots will be clearly marked for 18 - 64 years or 65 years and older. It is essential that patients book themselves into the correct appointment type as the vaccine differs.Please note these appointments are for flu vaccinations only.

We will again be offering vaccinations to:

  • Patients aged 65 years and over
  • Patients under 65 years who are considered at risk
  • Two and Three year olds - we are waiting for delivery dates for this vaccine
  • Pregnant patients

Our clinics will have to run differently this year to ensure we comply with social distancing requirements and to allow for the nurses to follow infection control cleaning procedures between patients.

Patients are being asked to:

  • Arrive wearing a face covering/mask
  • Arrive at the time of the appointment. Not earlier or later.
  • Not attend if feeling unwell.
  • Queue standing - those patients who are unable to stand for more than 10 minutes will need to contact the practice for further advice
  • Attend alone
  • Bring as little as possible with them

In addition this year there is an additional flu campaign to offer vaccinations to anyone aged between 50 years and 64 years who does not fall into the at risk category. We are unable to offer these patients appointments yet. We are waiting for further information from NHS England regarding the vaccine for these patients.
