Please note that we still haven't received a firm delivery date for our adult flu vaccines, due to 'road haulage' problems so the information below may change. Please keep checking this page for the most updated information.
We have to purchase our flu vaccines months in advance of the clinics and we purchase enough for everyone who is eligible. We would therefore request that when patients receive their invitations, they support the surgery and attend the clinics. If you have already received you vaccine elsewhere please let us know by replying to the text with the word 'DECLINE' - this will remove you from our lists this year.
After the success of the clinics last year we have decided to use the Methodist Hall on Elbow Lane for our flu vaccination clinics again this year.
We will be holding the clinic sessions from the end of September through to the beginning of November.
Texts have been sent to patients who are invited to the clinics on 28th, 29th & 30th September. Patients will be called alphabetically to try to ensure partners are invited to the same clinic.
Letters and text invitations for the remaining clinics will be sent out the week commencing 4th October.
Each invitation will allocate an hour-long time slot to attend on a drop-in basis. Patients will be asked to attend at any point during the allocated hour. We please request that you try to attend at this time so that we ensure an even flow of traffic through the building and no one is having to wait too long.
If you are unable to make the hour indicated on your text message you can turn up at any time during the day stated. If you are not able to attend on that day please await a further invitation later in the month for a different clinic.
When attending your appointment, we ask you to please wear a mask. There will be hand sanitizer stations throughout the building. You must NOT attend an appointment if you or any member of your household are suffering from any of the symptoms associated with COVID-19 or are self-isolating.
Vehicles will NOT be allowed into the Methodist Church Hall car park. Please make alternative arrangements. Anyone who may struggle with this arrangement due to mobility problems will be able to book an appointment at the surgery from the week commencing 4th October.
Please wear suitable clothing to stay dry and warm as you may not be able to come inside the hall until it is safe to be vaccinated. Once inside the hall, it would be beneficial to be able to easily remove outer layers so we can access your upper arm quickly and easily.
Housebound patients will be contacted to arrange their appointments separately.
It would be very much appreciated if you avoid contacting us with specific questions at this time as the surgery is extremely busy dealing with patients with ongoing medical matters.
