Flu Vaccinations

For this year’s flu vaccination programme we are offering a series of ‘drop-in’ sessions – there will be NO pre-booked appointments except for children 2-18 years who are eligible for the nasal flu vaccination.  Once we know when the nasal vaccinations are available we will invite you to make appointments for your children.

We would appreciate that all eligible patients attend one of flu the clinics listed below – there is no need to contact the Surgery to advise us which clinic you will be coming to.  If you have difficulty with mobility or general attendance, please contact Reception to arrange an appointment.  If the District Nurses currently see you at home, they will be able to administer your vaccine there.

Eligibility:  Everyone aged 65 or over is entitled to this vaccination (eg: DOB on or before 31/03/1953) as well as anyone under the age of 65 who has a diagnosis of: diabetes, heart or kidney disease, chronic respiratory problems, asplenia and lowered immunity.  Pregnant women are eligible for the vaccination and also all children who are aged 2 and 3 years old on 1.9.2017 (eg: DOB 01/09/2013 – 31/08/2015).  Children born between 1/9/2008 and 31/8/2013 will receive their vaccination at school unless they are in an “at risk” group.  We will write to any children who are “at risk” and eligible to have their vaccination here at the surgery.  Wait for your invite to arrive before contacting the surgery to arrange an appointment for your child.

Parking:  We would appreciate your co-operation with regards to parking.  If at all possible please leave your car at home or share transport.  Staff park off-site and we would appreciate if you could avoid parking in ‘No Gains’ road if possible – if you do park there please be careful not to obstruct entrances to properties.
