September News - Flu vaccines
As the weather turns and autumn arrives we expect to see a steady increase in viral illness. Of the many viral respiratory illnesses Influenza is the biggest threat to health and life. Vaccinations are available for at risk groups. Vaccination is the best way to protect against Influenza.
Flu vaccines are delivered to our surgeries from September. We run weekend clinics for those at risk. These are available to book online via patient access or at reception. The dates are:
Saturday 16th of September
Saturday 23rd of September
We also have daily flu vaccine appointments at each site at 11am from Moday 18th September. Again these can be booked online or via reception. If you are seeing one of our clinicians for an appointment for other reasons you will be offered vaccination during your consultation to save you a special trip.
Not everyone is eligible for vaccination on the NHS. Only those at risk (see the NHS choices website for eligibility information), aged over 65years or those caring for someone in the at risk group.
We do have limited stocks allocated based on estimates of our at risk population. Once these stocks have gone we are unable to order more. So please make sure you book in early to avoid disappointment.
Why use patient access?
View all the available appointments and pick the one that best suits your schedule. Book a slot even if we are closed. Order your medicines. Rearrange an appointment without having to call. Do all of this from the comfort of your own home at a time that suits, from your PC, tablet or phone.
