With Coronavirus (COVID-19) around it's more important than ever to get the flu vaccine this autumn to protect yourself, others and the NHS.
Our vaccine supplies are delivered in phases and phase 1 of flu clinics will be available for those Over 65 and to everyone in the “at risk” groups.
Although this year’s vaccination will be extended and offered to everyone over the age of 55, this group will be offered appointments in phase 2. Should supplies subsequently allow, the vaccine may then be offered to everyone over the age of 50.
With the added challenge of Covid at this year’s clinics and social distancing we ask that you are understanding of this when attending. We are delivering a high number of vaccines at the clinic and therefore we hope that if you do have a wait, it should be minimal and we will only have minimal seating for those who need it.
PLEASE CONTACT THE PRACTICE NOW TO BOOK AN APPOINTMENT FOR YOUR FLU VACCINATION IF YOU ARE "OVER 65" OR IN THE "AT RISK" GROUP.
PLEASE NOTE WHEN ATTENDING A FLU CLINIC ONLY, NO OTHER SERVICES WILL BE AVAILABLE.
When attending the Flu Clinic, remember to :
ü Wear a face covering
ü Attend alone (or with another member of your household who requires a flu vaccination or a carer if required)
ü Maintain Social Distancing
