Flu Vaccinations Autumn/Winter 2020

We are still busy booking appointments for flu vaccinations.

Due to Covid-19 we are running our flu clinics slightly differently this year, with enhanced safety measures and social distancing, to minimise the risk to both your health and ours.

Our second vaccine delivery for the over 65 age group arrived on 16th October, but we are not due to receive the vaccine for the Under 65 at risk group until the end of October at the earliest. We will continue dedicated vaccination clinics, primarily on Saturdays, throughout the autumn season.

All clinics will continue to be by appointment only, managed by a bookings team via a dedicated telephone line, separate to our main surgery number.  Please try to avoid contacting our reception team to book or enquire about a flu vaccination; bear in mind they are trying to deal with patients who require medical assistance and also they may not have access to the flu clinic appointment schedules.

We are experiencing a higher than usual demand for vaccinations this year and so we have tried to ensure that patients in the highest risk groups received an invite and were/will be vaccinated first.  We have sent invitations via email and/or text message to those eligible patients who have given us permission to do so.  For those who haven't, a letter has been sent via Royal Mail.

We are now able to offer flu vaccinations to the 50-64 age group.  We will be holding a further clinic on Saturday 12th December. Invitations will be going out very soon. Appointments can be requested via our Flu Line: 01794 885275 Monday to Friday between 09:00 & 16:00. We anticipate that the line will be very busy, so please bear with us
