Flu vaccination is available to our eligible patients every year at the surgery to help protect them against flu and its complications.

Due to COVID, we are expecting greatly increased demand for flu vaccinations in the coming months, and with the COVID threat, it is our absolute priority to help our patients stay fit and healthy during the coming winter months.  We would like to take this opportunity to reassure you that the surgery has measures in place to ensure that our patients feel safe when attending for their appointments. To ensure that we are able to maintain social distancing we ask that when you attend for your appointment you arrive at the appointed time you have been given, and that you wear a facemask or covering.  All of our staff will be wearing PPE and will be signposting you where to go when you arrive.

Flu Vaccination

Flu vaccination  is available to our eligible patients every year at the surgery to help protect them against flu and its complications.

Due to COVID we are expecting greatly increased demand for flu vaccinations in the coming months.

More than ever, during the Covid threat we want to give our eligible patients their flu jab; we have planned our capacity to be able to give this important protection to our patients, here at the Surgery.

Delivery of our Flu Vaccinations are expected week commencing 21st September.

The Surgery will be holding flu clinics at weekends along with weekdays throughout September and October.

Those eligible patients who are over 65 or those who are in the at risk category due to a long-term health condition, will be able to book their appointment online or by contacting the surgery from Monday 10th August.

It is our absolute priority to help our patients stay fit and healthy during the coming winter months, and patients can be reassured that the Surgery has measures in place to ensure that patients feel safe when attending for their appointments. Our staff will be wearing Personal Protective Equipment and patients will be asked to wear a face covering or mask.

Following the recent Government announcement that the flu vaccination will be expanded to include patients aged 50-64, we await further guidance. Once vaccination of the most ‘at-risk’ groups is underway, the Department of Health and Social Care will work with GP Practices to open the programme further to invite eligible patients. We will be pleased to offer these vaccinations too at the surgery, as soon as the rules are known.
