FLU

We are now taking bookings for flu vaccination. Please contact a member of the reception team if you are aged 65 and over or are between 18 and 64 and are routinely offered the flu vaccination.

Pregnant ladies and carers are also eligible please make contact to book.

Please note that, if you are aged between 50 and 64 and not in a clinical at risk group, the earliest you will be offered a flu vaccination is November, providing there is sufficient vaccine.  No appointments will be offered for people in this age group until then. This is to ensure that those who are most at risk are vaccinated first.  If you are aged 50 to 64 and are in a clinical ‘at risk’ group which is eligible for the flu vaccination, for example you have a health condition which puts you at risk from the flu, you will be invited earlier.

Flu Clinics

Flu vaccination is one of the most effective interventions we have to reduce pressure on the health and social care system this winter. We are currently seeing the impact of COVID-19 on the NHS and social care, and this coming winter we may be faced with co-circulation of COVID-19 and flu. We understand that planning this year is more challenging with the uncertainties of staff absences, and how long policies around social distancing and school closures will remain in place. However, it is more important than ever to make every effort to deliver flu vaccination.

Please click the link below to find our more about the seasonal flu vaccination, why we should have it and the eligibility criteria for 2020-21.

Over the coming weeks the practice will be communicating with eligible groups and offering flu appointments throughout September, October and November.

Please contact a member of our reception team to discuss and arrange suitable appointments on 01494 890900.

In addition, during 2020-21 flu vaccinations may be offered under the national vaccination programme to those patients between 50-64, following prioritisation of other eligible groups and subject to vaccine supply. The practice will announce further information about this in due course, this is unlikely to occur prior to November 2020.

IMPORTANT

PLEASE NOTE: The practice will be operating flu clinics in our car park at the rear of our building. Patients should ensure that they are prepared to stand in a queue prior to their appointment, there will be no available shelter whilst queuing.  Patients should attend their scheduled appointment on their own, unless a carer is required to support. Equally patients should only attend at the given appointment time to ensure the queue is manageable and social distancing measures can be respected at all times. Patients should ensure face coverings are worn whilst queuing and during the appointment for vaccination to protect everyone.
