Annual Flu Vaccinations – people age 65 and over
We will be writing to all our patients age 65 and over (or turning 65 this flu season) to invite them in to our Saturday flu clinic on 15th October.
Having the flu vaccine is the best way to protect yourself and others from a nasty virus that kills around 11,000 people every year in England. By having the vaccine you’re also helping protect the NHS from being overwhelmed by a flu epidemic combining with any rise in Covid-19 cases.
For details of who’s entitled to the free vaccine, visit www.nhs.uk and search for “flu”.
Flu Vaccinations are available for all patients who are over 65, who have Chronic Disease, who are pregnant, or who are carers. This offers a high level of protection from influenza and its complications.
Please attend alone unless you need a carer, wear a mask if you have a chronic disease.
Please do not arrive at the flu clinic if you have any of the following symptoms:
New, Continuous Cough (repeatedly coughing OR Temp greater than 37.8 or a loss of sense of smell / taste.)
