FLU - UPDATE November 2020

We have secured extra stock of flu vaccine please contact us is you fall into one of the eligible groups. Please note those who fall under the 50-64 new group who don't have a chronic disease and this would be the first year of offer we have been advised by NHS England that we are not to vaccinate this group yet. We will announce further information relating to this age group as and when it is filtered from NHS England.

Thank you

Flu Update October 2020

Practices and pharmacies alike have faced an increased demand this flu season in uptake of the flu vaccination. Currently all available vaccines held and awaited delivery have been allocated to those who have booked an appointment. We are awaiting further guidance from NHS England regarding accessing further supplies but this guidance is likely not to be received until November.

Please be rest assured if you  have yet to get your vaccine this flu season, and fall into the NORMAL cohort of eligibility (*NOT 50-64 years without a chronic disease) we are working as best we can to ensure further stocks are procured from the government reserve as earliest as possible and we have raised our concerns with our local commissioning group who have escalated to NHS England.

*Please note that, if you are aged between 50 and 64 and not in a clinical at risk group, the earliest you MAY 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 should have received an invite and may be awaiting further contacting regarding more supplies of vaccine.

We share your frustrations as a team and will be in touch with all eligible groups as and when guidance is cascaded to us about potential stock that we can access.

Thank you for your patience - DR Mallard-Smith and Partners
