FLU SEASON Sept 21 - Jan 22
We are due to start this years flu vaccinations in September and this year we may be doing clinics outside again depending on weather and latest guidance and to minimise risk to patients and staff. Clinics will be by invitation only and as in previous years you MUST bring your letter with you as we will have limited access to computers to check eligibility.
We again have to to target specific groups –
* Over 65s (ALL)
* AT RISK 18-65 year old
* At Risk 2-18 18 nasal flu
* Not At Risk 50-64 year olds
* Housebounds and Residential Care Homes– Please attend the surgery clinics if at all possible. We have visited most patients who are on our housebound list now with a few to do who have recently become housebound and rung in to let us know.
If you usually have a flu vaccination and do not receive your letter by the end of October then please use the contact us tab on this website to let us know and we can check for you.
We do not yet know how this will work with Covid Vax boosters - whether we can do together or have to be a week apart. As soon as we get guidance we will make decisions on vaccination sites and times.
