Flu Vaccinations

We have received lots of enquiries about flu vaccinations. Please note that receptionists will not be booking flu appointments but we will be advising all eligible patients by letter or by phone. We have now used all our stocks of flu vaccination and we are waiting for more to be delivered. We will contact any eligible patients who have not been vaccinated as soon as these are available. If you have not heard from us by 13th November and believe you are eligible please give us a call.

We will offer the vaccination to all our eligible patients those over 65 and those who have a medical condition which puts them more at risk if they catch flu. The Government has extended the flu vaccination this year to patients who have been advised to shield during the Covid outbreak. Some of these patients will already be in our at risk category but we are awaiting guidance from the Government on how we obtain sufficient vaccines to offer vaccination to this additional category of patients. Additionally we are advised to wait for further Government advice on the plan to offer vaccinations to patients aged 50-64. We understand that this programme will not take place until November at the earliest. We will keep you updated when we receive further guidance.

School aged children will be given the flu vaccination at school and will not be able to attend the surgery for this. Vaccinations for those children aged 4 – 18 who have a medical condition that requires them to have a different vaccination and children aged 2-3 years can have their vaccination at the surgery and arrangements will be communicated to parents of eligible children for the vaccinations to be given by one of our practice nurses.
