Please note that Flu Vaccinations this year will be done slightly differently due to Covid-19 restrictions. Please do not telephone the Practice for further information – you will be referred back to this website. If you are due a flu vaccination, you will be sent a letter asking you to attend one of our dedicated flu clinics which we are hoping to have in the Practice on a week day. Appointments will not be given at any other time unless you are seeing a member of the Nursing Team for review. This letter will state all the restrictions that are in place and you are advised to take this letter with you to the Clinic which will show your consent. If you do not take this letter with you, you will NOT be seen.
Phase 1 – begins from early October 2020 until end of November 2020 – at the moment, we are unsure as to when deliveries of flu vaccinations will take place.
All 2 – 5 year olds – but only those who have not yet started School
All at risk below the age of 64
All over 65s (as at 31/03/21)
Those patients who were asked to Shield.
Please see NHS Inform website for further information.
Phase 2 – begins once Phase 1 has been completed and vaccination stocks allow.
Household members of Covid-19 Shielding patients – registered patients with the Practice only. Shielding patients will be asked to have their household members contact their individual Practices to be put on a list for vaccination
55-64 not at risk
Please note that if the District Nurse attends you, they will be performing your flu vaccination. If you are housebound, please let the Practice know.
This year, all pregnant ladies will be vaccinated by the Community Midwife.
Face Coverings – We should always STRONGLY ENCOURAGE the use of masks, including asking people in the building to do so, or to wear them properly if they are not wearing them correctly. We are not required to provide masks to anyone. We are not required to provide Exemption Letters to patients who are exempt from wearing masks.
“Providing a service of which we can feel confident and proud!”
If you are unable to keep your appointment please let us know as soon as possible.
If a GP has asked you to email the Practice with photographs because of the low-availability of face to face appointments due to the Coronavirus Pandemic, please send your email to [email protected] or click on this link. Please DO NOT email the Practice unless you have been asked to do so.
