Flu Vaccination Information for Patients
Owing to the impact of Covid-19, our flu clinics will be somewhat different this year. To keep all of our patients safe, we will be seeing limited numbers in each clinic and you may have to wait outside.
If you are eligible, you will be invited by the practice to attend an appointment. Patients in the same household should book together and should enter the practice as a group.
**50-64 year olds are now being invited for flu vaccinations**
**ANY eligible patient outside of the 'healthy' 50-64 year old group who has not been vaccinated should call the practice to receive their vaccination as soon as possible**
You must wear a face covering on the premises and you will see that our staff will be using appropriate PPE. Your temperature may be taken on arrival and anyone with a raised temperature will be asked to return home. You shouldn’t attend the practice if you have Covid-19 symptoms, or feel generally unwell.
Please make sure that when you turn up, you are wearing clothing that allows the clinician to access the top of your upper arm quickly. In order to minimise the risk of transmission to our patients and staff we want to avoid people remaining in the practice longer than necessary.
Childhood flu clinics: The childhood flu programme is to vaccinate preschool 2 to 3 year olds using a gentle nasal spray. Only one parent should attend the appointment with their child and should wear their face covering to enter the surgery.
