We are now organising our Flu clinics for 2018 and invitations have now been sent out to patients eligible for a free annual flu vaccination .  

These patients include:-

    • All patients aged 65 years or over

    • Patients with diabetes, heart disease, conditions affecting the lungs,kidneys or liver

    • history of stroke or TIA

    • Neurological conditions

    • suppressed immune system

    • Pregnancy

    • Patients with a BMI >40

    • Carers of patients with the above conditions

  • This year NHS England and Public Health England have recommended that patients over the age of 65 years receive the Adjuvanted Vaccine FLUAD® as this is the most beneficial for patients in this age group.

    Unfortunately there is only one supplier of this vaccine nationally and therefore delivery of vaccines will be made in three stages, in September, October and November; this is outside of our control.

    Therefore we have had to plan our flu clinics in line with the delivery schedule for the vaccine; and you will be able to book appointments in clinics throughout September, October and November.

    Patients who are eligible for a flu vaccine who are under the age of 65 years will be vaccinated with a Quadrivalent vaccine, again the most beneficial for patients in this age group.

  • There will be separate clinics for patients under 65 years during September and October.

    To book an appointment call 01736 363340 between 2pm and 4pm only when there will be more staff available to answer calls. Please be patient as the phone lines will be busy. Please ensure you book into the correct clinic according to your age – Under 65 years or Over 65 years of age.

    If you are housebound please let the receptionist know and we will arrange for a Nurse to visit you at home.

Children between the ages of 2-17 years in an 'at risk' group are eligible for a nasal flu vaccine and invitations will be sent out when dates for vaccine delivery are confirmed.

The Childrens' flu programme 2018/19 will be delivered as follows: 

    • Two and three years old (but not four years or older on 31.08.18) will be vaccinated at the surgery with the nasal spray

    • Children in reception class and school years 1-5 will be offered nasal vaccination in school.  The surgery is not commissioned to provide vaccinations for these children.

Please telephone the surgery with any flu vaccination queries you might have.
