Flu Season 2020
We are inviting patients who receive an invite letter to contact us AFTER the 15th September to book a flu vaccination appointment
Flu vaccination provides the best protection against an unpredictable virus which infects many people and can cause serious illness and death each year.
The vaccination is free and recommended yearly for those most at risk from flu. You will be invited, by letter and text message (if we have your mobile telephone number number), if we identify that you are eligible for the flu vaccine. You are eligible if you are:
- currently 65 years or over (or will be by the 31st March 2021)
- under 65 years and you fall into an at risk group e.g. heart disease, asthma (must be taking certain medications), diabetes or pregnant etc
- age 2 or 3 years old (born between 1st September 2016 and 31st August 2018)
- if you are a patient who was shielding due to COVID 19.
- if you live with a patient who was shielding due to COVID 19.
Our aim is to vaccinate the above groups before the end of October.
It is anticipated patients aged between 50 - 64 years, who are are not in a usual at risk category, will be invited for a flu jab once we have vaccinated the people in the above categories.
Due to COVID 19 we will not be operating drop-in clinics this year. Please be assured that we will be operating a socially-distanced queuing system with strict infection control measures to reduce the risk of COVID-19. For this reason you will not be seen without a pre-booked appointment.
All our flu clinics will be conducted in our car parks so on these days there will be limited parking. When booking your appointment please be mindful of those who may only be able to reach us on a Saturday. Please do not arrive early for your appointment. If you are driving you are invited to wait in your car until we are ready to see you.
