It's Flu Season!
Posted on 6 Sep 2019
Slots are now available to book for your flu vaccine - please book online if you were born on 31.3.1955 or earlier.
We are now making appointments for adults for flu vaccinations. Please contact reception to make an appointment if you're 65 or over (or will be by 31.3.2020, that is born on 31.3.1955 or earlier), you are an unpaid carer, you are pregnant, you have a long term respiratory disease, a long term heart condition, a long term kidney or liver condition, you are immunocompromised (weakened immune system), you have a long term neurological condition, you are overweight with a BMI of 40 or above, you have a problem with your spleen, or you are diabetic.
As last year, the 65 and over age group will be having a different vaccine to the under 65's, more information is available at https://www.nhs.uk/conditions/vaccinations/flu-influenza-vaccine/ .
Our deliveries are staggered, we're not due to receive the over 65's vaccine until 23rd September, and the under 65's 7th October. This year for the first time you can book your appointments online if you're in the over 65 age group and we'd encourage you to do this.
We've not yet been notified of the delivery dates for the children's flu vaccine, we will make appointments avaiable once we have more information.
