FLU IMMUNISATION

 We are continuing to send invites for the flu vaccination, prioritising those most at risk first. Unfortunately increased demand means we have to carefully monitor our stock levels.

 

Because of social distancing requirements, clinics will be running on set dates at the Meridian Hall at East Court and the Surgery. Clinics at the Meridian Hall will be held on Sundays.  

 

 Invitations have already been sent to people who are shielding, children aged 2 - 3 and 12 - 17 and over 65s who are at risk. 

 

We are now inviting at risk patients under 65 and will continue to regularly send out invites.

 

Appointment confirmation letters will have a bar code and will be posted.  You MUST remember to bring this letter to your clinic appointment.

 

Our Next Clinics are:

  • Meridian Hall on Sunday 11 October

  • A seperate children's clinic will be running at the Surgery on Sunday 11 October.

  • Meridian Hall on Sunday 1 November

 

  • We will also be running a number of drive through clinics at the Surgery. Please call for more information.

 

  • Please note that, if you are aged between 50 and 64 and not in a clinical at risk group, the earliest you will be offered a flu vaccination is November, providing there is sufficient vaccine. No appointments will be offered for people in this age group until then.
