Our flu campaign for 2019-20 will be led by our two walk-in clinics on Saturday 12th and Saturday 26th October - from 9am to 12noon.
All patients aged 65+ are invited to attend the walk-in clinics. Bookable clinics will not be made available until November. WE ARE VERY SHORT OF VACCINES FOR PATIENTS AGED UNDER 65. PLEASE DO NOT ATTEND THE CLINIC ON THE 26TH OCTOBER - WE WILL ARRANGE BOOKABLE CLINICS AND TEXT YOU WITH THE DETAILS SO YOU CAN RING AND BOOK FOR YOUR VACCINATION. APOLOGIES, THIS IS A NATIONAL PROBLEM THIS YEAR. WE ANTICIPATE STOCKS ARRIVING BY 1st NOVEMBER.
National policy recommends vaccination against pneumococcal and shingles for patients in certain age groups. You will be offered these vaccinations in accordance with national guidance - we provide these all year round.
If you are unsure about your need for vaccination please ring and speak to our Practice Nurses.
Information about access to our online services and the wider use of the internet for our patients aged 60 and over will be available as part of Age UK's Digital Champion campaign at our walk-in sessions.
Clinics to give children aged 2 and 3 protection against flu via nasal spray will be announced once we have secured the spray. At present there is no facility for us to order it - we await additional information from the NHS.
