Flu Vaccination Clinic
This year we have changed how we will offer you a flu vaccine. We expect delivery on the 28th September and are arranging weekend flu clinics:
Saturday 3rd October 2020 AM
Saturday 17th October 2020 AM
Please check below to ensure you are eligible and please contact reception to make an appointment.
We will also offer appointments with our healthcare assistants in October and November. These appointments are now available to book at reception. Please ensure we have an up to date mobile number, so we can keep you updated if necessary.
For our weekend events we must be vigilant to maintain social distancing, so they will all be done on the ground floor. We will operate a one way system and it will be necessary for you to queue outside, with designated standing areas, there will be no seats to sit on or any toliet facilities on the day and there is also a few steps on the way out of the building, if you struggle with mobility please book in on alernative date as we need to maintain the one way system.
PLEASE WEAR A FACE MASK AND IF YOU HAVE ANY COVID-19 SYMPTOMS PLEASE DO NOT ATTEND YOUR APPOINTMENT AND REARRANGE IT.
We will also be offering a pneumonia vaccine to those eligible, at the same visit, to save you any avoidable visits to the practice.
Our clinicians will have administration staff on hand to ensure your medical record remains up to date with the vaccination details added at the time of vaccine. Please note we cannot provide other services during the flu clinics.
All staff members will be wearing full Personal Protective Equipment (PPE). The guidance for PPE for flu clinics is being regularly updated.
At Risk patients eligible for the flu vaccine:
We will firstly be inviting patients aged OVER 65 years,
and those who are under 65 years WITH health conditions making them eligible for the vaccine.
Later in the Autumn we will be arranging the vaccination of eligible children.
Lots of people are asking about the flu vaccine for those aged 50 to 64 years; these will take place AFTER at risk patients are offered the vaccine and if stocks allow.This is likely to be November or December and depends on further government guidance.
We will update more information nearer the time. Please follow our website.
