Flu vaccinations now available for over 65’s and under 65’s with an at risk medical condition

This year it is more important than ever to keep yourself healthy and protect the NHS. We expect huge demand for flu vaccine this year and so we have set up a new system with dedicated appointment slots to allow safe social distancing that keeps the number of people in the waiting room at a safe level.

To ensure patient safety and to adhere to social distancing we request patients do not arrive early for their appointment. Clinics will be held in the waiting room with a planned system of socially distanced screened areas and in each 10 minute block 10 patients will be vaccinated by several clinicians, who will be wearing appropriate PPE. Vaccination will be given in the right arm. Reception/Admin staff will be coordinating entry and exit from the surgery and waiting room. Clinics will be run at weekends, lunchtime and extended hours evenings to reduce the footfall within the surgery.

New cohort of well patients aged 50-64

We are currently waiting for further information regarding delivery of the vaccinations for this group. You will be contacted when these appointments become available.
