WE HAVE FLU APPOINTMENTS AVAILABLE – PLEASE RING TO BOOK ON 01244 385553
Annual Flu Vaccinations – people age 65 and over
We have written to all our patients age 65 and over (or turning 65 this flu season) to invite them in to our Saturday flu clinics in October. Unfortunately due to unprecedented demand, our Saturday flu clinics are now full. Please ring to book for you flu vaccination in one of our other clinics.
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.
Flu Vaccinations – people age 50-64 not at risk
This year, due to the coronavirus pandemic, NHS England have recommended that all people age 50-64 receive a flu vaccination. We will be writing to you to invite you to book in for clinics later in the year once we have vaccinated all clinically at-risk patients.
For details of who’s entitled to the free vaccine, visit www.nhs.uk and search for “flu”.
You will receive a letter if you are in the eligible groups.
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 Note: We ask that all patients attending the clinic wear a face covering and adhere to 2 metre social distancing when within the building. Temperature checks will be conducted on entrance to the building. PLEASE ARRIVE AT THE TIME OF YOUR APPOINTMENT.
Please attend alone unless you need a carer, they should wear a mask too.
