Seasonal Flu Vaccination Program

Telephone Lines 

We have now switched off the mobile telephones so any further appointments for flu vaccinations can be booked through either Patient Access or the regular reception lines.

 

How we will operate this year:

As you will all be aware, this year’s flu campaign will be more complex than usual.  We expect a higher than normal uptake whilst maintaining ‘strict’ social distancing measures.

Our plan may have to be adapted as we receive more details from NHS England.  It would be very much appreciated if you avoided contacting us with specific questions at this time as the surgery is extremely busy dealing with patients with ongoing medical matters. This page will be updated regularly as we receive additional information.

Please see below our plan as of 2nd December 2020 which is subject to change at short notice. We will not be offering drop-in clinics this year due to COVID-19 restrictions.

Invitations:

All eligible patients have now been sent their invitation to book their appointment. If you usually have the flu vaccination and have not received an invitation either via text or in letter form please call the surgery to seek advice.

We still have appointments available for over 65 patients -
