Flu Vaccination Clinics 2020

Due to COVID-19 flu vaccination clinics will be running differently this year. You must wear a mask if attending a appointment.

Please note the flu vaccine does not protect you from COVID-19 and you should continue to follow government advice to protect yourself and those around you.

If, after 30th September you have not received a letter or text message, please call our reception team who can arrange for your records to be reviewed to see if you are eligible.

If you are not clinically eligible for a free vaccination you can enquire at your local pharmacy and they may provide this service for a fee.

If you have received a text or letter informing you that you are eligible for the flu vaccination please contact reception who will arrange an appointment for you.

Saturday Flu Clinics – 26TH Sept, 3rd Oct, 10th Oct

Clinics at the practice will be held on Saturday only, if an appointment is already booked with a clinician and the flu vaccines have arrived then, providing the patient is eligible they will be able to have the flu vaccine during the appointment.

During the Saturday clinics patients will be required to queue at the rear of the building (via the back car park) where we will be operating a one way system. If a patient presents at the front of the surgery for a flu appointment then then they will be asked to go to the back of the building.

Patients must arrive at the allocated appointment time, if you arrive more than 5 minutes early then you will be asked to wait in your car or, if you have arrived on foot you will be asked to wait away from the queue.

Other clinics will be held in the community, these will be located at Civic Community Centre. The dates will be confirmed at a later date and the details will be available on our website. The clinics being held at the community centre are appointment only and will be booked by our reception team.

Home Visit Flu Clinics

Home visits will be taking place but we are focusing our first wave of vaccines on our most vulnerable patients, those that are housebound are in effect shielding. If you would prefer to come to the surgery but are not too mobile, our Nurses will facilitate your flu jab in a car (providing you are not driving); if this is something you are interested in please make our reception team aware as this has to be booked in as part of a special session.
