Flu vaccinations for the 2020-21 season
We are now booking flu vaccination appointments for our eligible patients. Flu vaccination clinics will be held from the beginning of October and will be slightly different to in previous years as we try to minimise the number of patients in attendance at any one time, due to COVID-19 safety measures. Clinics will mainly be held on Saturdays so that the only patients attending the surgery will be those for their flu vaccination.
Please telephone reception for more information and to book an appointment.
Patients will be required to:
- wear a face covering to their appointment
- wear appropriate clothing for easy access to an arm for the vaccination
- arrive on time at the time given when you book (please do not arrive early)
- not come if you have any respiratory symptoms or are generally unwell on the day of your appointment
Please note that the announcement by Public Health England to further extend the list of eligible patients this year to include those aged between 50-64 years old will be subject to vaccine availability and will likely be from November/December.
